Click Here to download ERS-2013-04-03 #329 Back from a short trip on vacation with family, it was nice to get away and into some warmer weather for a little bit. There are quite a few articles worthy of a read on the show today as well as for sharing so make sure you do so. We have our prize pack giveaway this week and will attempt to discuss the idiots who have come up with the idea of helicopter escalator riding. There will most likely not be a show next week as I’ll be traveling to Boston to present at the MESA meeting. I’m really looking forward to seeing everyone out there. Support your local elevator association, get involved. It’s a great way to find out what’s going on in the local and state level. Visit www.mesaassoc.com for more details.

Special thanks to the companies who have donated goodies to the prize pack giveaway!

Click Here to download ERS-2011-12-20 #280 It’s hard to believe that two terrible elevator accidents happened on the opposite ends of the country, yet the reason for why each occurred will most likely be connected to the same underlying issues.  Never before have I been scared of riding in an elevator, however the accident in New York makes me think twice about doing so.  It seems that whenever accidents like these happen many of us turn our heads and don’t want to say anything while others take a step forward, identifying the issues and making improvements to ensure accidents like this don’t happen in the future. Make the choice to step forward, make a difference, discuss with your coworkers and make improvements that protect everyone who ride and work with elevators and escalators.
