Back to work after a great week in New Orleans at the NAEC Convention!  It was truly an honor and pleasure to see so many of you who stopped by our booth and also attended my round table session. Very insightful conversations that occurred during the three hours I was there. As expected I learned just as much from those who attended as I had to share. I’ve got a complete update of last week along with some good articles to share on the program today. Good to be back in Chicago, the best part of any business trip is coming home.

Looks as that will be my vacation for the summer.  Stay cool, drink lots of liquids and make sure you take time for vacation before summer runs out!  The kiddies will be headed back to school before you know it!

Post: April 21st 2010: ERS-2010-04-21st #201 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2010-04-21 #201 A shorter show today as we roll over into show 201. There were quite a few people jibber jabbering about elevators but not a whole lot of substance. Thanks to everyone who sent in e-mails with congrats on the show 200. It was nice to hear from you all. We’ve got a couple of scary escalator accident articles on the show today. One that could have ended tragically as a little boy was carried up the outside handrail. Escalators are not toys nor are they pieces of playground equipment. It was good that someone was close by and caught him as he fell. The other had a little girl, 3, holding on to the handrail and not letting go. Here hand was pulled into the handrail entry point. These two accidents are two GREAT reasons to support the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation.  Visit www.eesf.org today!
