The first steps in eliminating and controlling electrical hazards in construction sites are to provide proper training and PPE to affected employees. Ground fault electrical shock is the most common electrical hazard in construction sites. With appropriate grounding, you protect both employees and electrical equipment.

These may quite possibly be the best gloves I have ever put on my hands.
I just wish that they could make the sleeves to do the same... but they wont coat correctly. Ah 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!!!
Has anyone else come across this?

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.

Some people have been asking for a copy of the Communicating for Safety Excellence powerpoint that was discussed in the Supervisor training discussion. I can't get it to upload correctly here. If you would like a copy of it, just email me at email@example.com. I'd be glad to share it along with other things. Thanks
