Many people spend nearly as much time at work as they do at home, so when a life-threatening emergency happens, it’s often other workers who must provide critical, immediate aid. That quick action can be the difference between life or death. The Governor’s Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board presents awards to workplace heroes at its annual conference, and now’s the time to nominate people for the 2018 Governor’s Lifesaving Awards.
Industry interest continues to grow as Construction Safety Day hosted nearly 300 people this year on May 11 at the Washington Sate Fair. The event opened with Keynote Speaker Eric Giguere, an average guy who had an attitude toward safety of “accidents happen, but not to me” until the one that nearly took his life. Now Eric travels the country sharing his story to make sure the attitude he had toward safety doesn’t become yours. His message that “this can happen to you” was heard as the audience listened intently. Attendees received the latest information on rules, guidelines and tips
