Editorial: "Here's Who To Blame In The Elevator Accident That Killed A Y&R Exec"

My name is Dan Zeitz. I am the Operations Manager and Safety Director for Midwest Elevator is St. Louis, Missouri. As New York recently learned (http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/27/city-blames-fatal-elevator-accident-on-poor-maintenance-work/?src=tp), jumper left behind accidents are a very dangerous, and potentially lethal, problem. I invented, patented and brought to market, a jumper which would prevent the very scenario which killed the Y&R Exec. This product has been available through Wurtec Industries for two years. I created this jumper to eliminate the unnecessary loss of life and serious injuries which occur through human error or negligence.

I thought you should be aware that a safety device existed which could have prevented this tragedy. Please, let's prevent another injury/death.

If there is someone in your organization more appropriate, I would appreciate your forwarding this information.

Thank you,

Click Here to download ERS-2010-03-03 #194 I just got back from the EESF Annual meeting in Atlanta and wanted to get this show posted. I’ve got a great one today. In addition to covering some the important events on our calendar I’ll be sharing the interview I recorded last week with Dan Zeitz, inventor of the Time Out Jumper. I give Dan a lot of credit for getting his idea out of his head and out on the market, with the help from Wurtec, Inc. So the show format will be simple events and Dan’s interview. Spread the word about this device, it’s simple, safe and makes sense. Wurtec has donated one for our March Prize Pack give away so make sure you are signed up for our e-newsletter to be eligible to win.
