elevator escalator safety foundation

No Show - 2/15/17

I'm currently attending the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation yearly Annual General Meeting in Mobile, AL. The talent on our board of directors always impresses me. I'll have a complete update on where the EESF has been and the plan for the foundation in the upcoming year on next weeks program. I'm excited and look forward to listening to ideas, comments on how to eliminate preventable accidents on elevators, escalators and moving walkways due to rider behavior.

Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #386 - Week 01/14/15

Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #386 - Week 01/14/15 (Audio/Video DOA, not available this week) CaptureThere was a terrible accident in NY this week were an elevator mechanic was killed in the hoist way.  We leave our warm beds each day heading to work with not a though that our day could turn as tragically as it did for this mechanic. I can’t say it enough but make safe work practices the number one priority of your day. I don’t care how many units you have on your route or who is yelling at you to move faster.  Experts note that you are more likely to have an accident in the surroundings that are the most familiar to you so don't get too comfortable out there.  Heading home at the end of the day to your family and making sure those you work with should be on your mind all day. Just a side note, the show with my rant did not record/output the way it needed to so no audio/video show today.

Audio File Link: Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #385 - Week 01/07/15 Happy New Year! Unfortunately we’re starting 2015 on a sad note with the recent news of a 12 year old who was killed when he entered the shaft of a home elevator in Florida and was crushed to death. It’s truly frightening to imagine that his could even happen. It’s a tragic death which requires everyone's help in spreading the word regarding riding elevators and escalators safely and that they are neither toys, nor amusement rides. And while the details of the accident have not been released we encourage anyone with a home elevator to get it checked out by your local elevator company to ensure that it’s safe and the distance between the hallway doors and gate is minimized to prevent any child from accidentally getting wedged between the door and gate when the hallway door is closed. Visit http://homesafecampaign.com/ as well as http://www.eesf.org for more information regarding elevator and escalator safety.

The Elevator Escalator Safety foundation rebranding committee met yesterday in Chicago yesterday and I have to say it was nice to meet and see everyone who attended.  The good news is that we’re moving towards a different direction with the program the bad news is that the plan to do so is still being formulated. This is an exciting time for the foundation and one that is a long time coming. I’ll have more to share on this process as our committee moves through it and look forward to doing so. One accident on today’s show just goes to prove that the EESF is still needed in preventing accidents from happening.
