How to Pass an OSHA Inspection

A lot of attention surrounded the OSHA fall protection requirements that went into effect back in June of 2011.

Safety Third: Nemo Special Ops Underwater Drill

Safety Third: Safety Glasses

I’ve said it before, I’m all for helping out a friend in need. So when Clint DeBoer called me to see if I could help him rip up his old deck in preparation for the new install, I didn’t hesitate. Helping out is an intrinsic moral boost in itself, but when “help” means I get […]
