Living along the gulf coast has put me in a network with many wonderful people. Additionally, as you live on the gulf coast, you learn to become a amateur meteorologist; with that you acquire numerous websites that help track storms. Recently someone provided this website to me. As the Safety "czar" for my company, I have to watch out for not only my family, but my work family as well.

Over the past several months I have encountered people wearing fall protection who have no clue about what they are doing. Most common is someone up 12 feet and tied off at their fett. They are 5'11'' or better with a 6 foot lanyard!!!

I've talked before in discussions about the use of silly, funny videos before, during, and after training to keep the associates entertained and also drive future training. If you would like to see some copies of videos that I use, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll share them. I'm sure many of you have seen and used them as well. Maybe you have some I don't. Let's make each other laugh.
