These past few days have been horrific across the U.S. The stunning tragedy at Fort Hood claiming the lives of 13 people along with many injured, and then today’s workplace shooting in Orlando. All that seems to come to mind is, what is wrong with people today and why is it that signs of danger get ignored until it is too late?

Fall (the season) hazards

[General Industry] What is your workplace's policy on headphones? Working on one currently.

I have been tasked to create a headphones (and cell phone) policy for my employer.
