Post: October 13th, 2010: ERS-2010-10-13 #223 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2010-10-13 #223 While not as long of a show as last week it a huge one to say the least. There are at least three tragic accidents involving elevators which should never have happened. This just goes to show you how important it is for all of us  to promote safety. Both to the people we work with as well as for the people who own and use vertical transportation equipment. The first article I lead with this week is a big one! I stumbled upon it by accident and am glad that I did. It’s a perfect example and reminder for all of us that the cost for training and proper maintenance far outweighs the price associated with litigation. Print this one out or forward it to your coworkers.
