Elevator Radio Show 518 – Week 10/31/2018


It is so sad that we lost another elevator mechanic this past week. I share that article along with another which goes to show that even the most safety conscious can be hurt or fatally injured in their everyday work environments. Not a great show to make anyone feel good so share the stories, the information with your coworkers and let’s all do our best to prevent any more accidents like this from happening in the future.  Since it’s the last show of the month I’m giving away a $100 and some goodies from the companies listed below.
