No Dogs on Escalators

Click Here to download ERS-2011-10-19 #273 We’ve got another accident to report on the show today involving another elevator mechanic up in Canada. I truly hope that the powers that be take safety as serious as possible when it comes to safety training for mechanics and technicians. It’s more than just the basics, it’s learning from experiences like this and being prepared for almost every kind of situation. Share this knowledge as it does nothing to assist those who are just learning.  Next week is our prize pack giveaway, make sure you get over and get your e-mail address added to our list to become eligible to win!

Even in with yesterday and today’s storms that are rolling through the show must go on! I don’t know about you but I love storms like this. I’m just glad it isn’t snowing. Today on the program there are a few stories worthy of sharing with your co-workers. There are two articles about the stimulus money funding elevator additions, a 4-year-old girl is killed by an elevator and in another country elevator and escalator accident data is shared openly with the public.

I realize that the death of the 4-year-old girl happened in another country but if we all do our part to spread the word about the EESF it just might catch on world-wide.  Also on the program today we’ll be giving away our prize pack giveaway! This month we’ve got $100 Gift Certificate from Duluth Trading Company a great company who has some great working gear and one of my favorite stores to shop from.

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