MA elevator inspections

Elevator Radio Show 440 - Week 08/31/16

The big story on today’s show is the shifting of elevator re-inspection strategy in the state of Massachusetts to help with the current backlog that exists.  My soapbox talk will be shared so be prepared for it. The important sentence that should be highlighted in first article link is the note that one in five annual safety checkups fail.  If there’s that great of a backlog here’s an idea, hire more inspectors because accidents like the ones linked on the show today are going likely to grow and it shouldn’t take a catastrophic event to make legislators think twice about not reinspecting elevators that fail.

On a more positive note it’s our prize pack giveaway and to become eligible to win the $100 visa gift card and goodies from the entities below just like our facebook page and/or subscribe on our website to updates.

Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #380 - Week 11/19/14

Audio Podcast: Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #380 - Week 11/19/14 ers-trkyWinter has come with a vengeance and I’m already looking forward to this weekend where temps are predicted to be in the upper 40’s, what’s wrong with me. For our listeners in NY or just East of Buffalo I’m glad that the snow you’re getting isn’t falling on Chicago.  Short show today but a couple of articles are filled with stupidness, yes I know that’s not a real word but I feel it fits the context of what I’m going to cover today. Next week there will be no show. I’m headed to the snow frozen Northwoods of Wisconsin with my family and plan on enjoying it. From my family to yours, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Be back with a new show the first week of December. Oh and one more thing, if you're looking for a new sweatshirt, consider this one. I know it's a bit much for a sweatshirt but I make no money on any of the items over on our goodies store. Everything is marked up $5 if you can believe it and that same $5 goes back to the EESF. It's a win win for everyone; they get $5, you have cool gear your coworkers will wish they had.
