ome of you listen each and every week, some simply visit the website to view the content online and others take a moment to send an email or tell me in person that they give me credit for doing what I do.  Today I give you all thanks for being part of my “elevator” family.  I can think of no other profession I’d rather be doing or industry I’d rather be part of.  I’m grateful for the wonderful friendships I’ve been lucky enough to have made over the years and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.  So thank you for being a part of this awesome ride. Safe travels to all who are heading away from home for Thanksgiving.  We all have so much to be thankful for that one day is not enough to remember this.

This week’s show proves that when stalled in an elevator its best not to take your frustration out on the elevator itself or you’re going to have a big bill to pay. Also an elevator technician in Canada shares the myths of movies and does a pretty good job. One week until my favorite holidays is fast approaching; almost time to give thanks for our friends, family and this industry.

I’m still feeling a bit under the weather and know some recent travel has not helped.  The good news is that there are no accidents relating to elevators, escalators or moving walkways on the program today.  This Saturday is Veterans Day so remember to thank a Vet for serving our country. You might see them at the grocery store; they might have a hat on which shows where they served.  Walk up to them, look them in the eyes, offer your hand out and as you shake there’s thank them for serving.   Freedom is not free and many have sacrificed more than any of us know to ensure we continue to have this unalienable right.

Good to be back although I could have used a couple extra hours of sleep, at least that’s what my body is telling me. The show is packed with articles and at least two of which I’m certain are being discussed on the job and between coworkers and for good reason.  I’ll talk more about that on today but want to leave you with this. Safety in our industry falls on each one of us. When accidents happen it is easy to point the finger at who is to blame but we are ultimately responsible for one person, ourselves.   News/Article Links: Person falls down elevator shaft Mitsubishi Electric to build elevator training center Company fined for violating safety rules Man rescued on escalator Man crushed in elevator - India Company alleged to owe more than $155K Moving walkways to be used at University Family of man who died in elevator accident files lawsuit Local 1 taking apprenticeship applications Smoke from elevator triggers evacuation I-Team Report CEA Monthly Meeting Nov 2nd Funny Jimmy Fallon bit Haunted in Dayton, includes elevator Escalator accidents in Montreal Metro Scary incident, not sure where or why

On the program today we talk about the top ten best jobs in Canada, learn where Perak is and cover and reflect on widening the perspective on the footprint we make in our industry and world.  Things that might actually make you scratch your head and think a bit.  Maybe even enough to start a conversation with your helper, coworker, spouse or children.  In addition I asked the question, why are experts stating that elevators installed today have a 10-15 year life expectancy before needing to be replaced.  Those of you who are in Germany at the Interlift show, pace yourself. Germans only have 31 days to celebrate Oktoberfest and take advantage of each one of them to do so.

Three stories on today’s show highlight the need for the EESF and the distribution of its safety programs to kids and parents. While two accidents occurred in China, one was here in the California. There are few details to share about the one in our backyard but anytime first responders are required for an extraction it’s never a good thing. Parents, this message is to you. Kids are curious and want to explore, I know because I have three boys.  You can’t keep them safe from everything and learning through their actions is a significant tool as they grow. However with that said it is your responsibility to recognize that attention to them around escalators, elevators, weed wackers, lawn mowers, potatoes guns or anything else that is mechanical or moves needs special care to use.  If you’re in this industry tell the world about safety and how to ride elevators and escalators safely and what to do if the equipment does not operate as it was designed to.   News/Article Links: CEA October meeting recap Smith Tower gets automated Camera catches woman kicking dog in elevator UTC hires new Judy Marks Golden escalator Worker dies falling from construction platform Never Take a Stroller On An Escalator Toddler injured on escalator in CA The future of laziness Toddler gets hand jammed in escalator 0 Likes Share Older PostElevator Radio Show 481 - Week 10/04/17 ANDROID LINK BLUBRRY CHANNEL ITUNES LINK YOUTUBE CHANNEL ONLINE STORE

I want to personally thank everyone who wrote me last week letting me know I was not alone in what I attempt to do each week.  I was blown away by everyone who took the time to write, call and send me text messages.  On top of all of those I was lucky enough to attend the NAESA Wisconsin Elevator Symposium last week and only for a day but it was great to talk with so many friends whom I haven’t seen in a while.  While I was only able to attend one day it was great to see the turn out the event received.  Today’s show is light on news but heavy on appreciation.   News/Article Links: Students tour PME CEA Meeting October 5th Cops help deliver baby in elevator Woman’s $900 shoes get caught in escalator Singapore: Accidents not related to user behavior What to do when stuck in an elevator Subway accessibility issues highlighted Three workers fall from TV Tower

Today’s show leads with a piece coming out of Nebraska. If this is how all of our legislators felt I’d say we’re in trouble.  In addition I’ve got a special message to all the naysayers out there.  Listen for more on the show.  For those of you who headed to Atlantic City for the NAEC Convention I hope it was a good event for you.  Special thanks go out to Glenn Duncan who headed the 50/50 Raffle for the EESF and the donation by the NAEC of the two life sized Safe-T-Riders characters that were unveiled at the EESF fundraiser on Saturday night.  Tomorrow is the Wisconsin Elevator Symposium which is a favorite for many in the industry. The perfect opportunity to get QEI credits if needed.  I will be there and am looking forward to it! Last Show Of The Month – Prize Pack Giveaway – Thanks To The Following Sponsors Of This C.J.

Another accident claims the life of a technician in Montreal which brings the count up to three this year. Details are very limited at this time and we ask you to keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.   As more information is released I’ll share it on the program. I’m proud to have been a part of the Elevator Safety Summit and truly hope that the recommended steps each of the working committees comes up with are accepted and adopted so that we never have to read another story like this again.

It was a tough week. Glad everyone in FL is going to be okay.
