I Do Not Use Chainsaws Or Power Tools – OHS090

Today I gave a safety presentation at my job. Working for the Bureau of Reclamation as a Federal Employee has a number of requirements. One of which is safety training. At first it was a bit difficult to decide on the topic. We do these every month and we often start to hear the same things over and over. My goal was to do something different. I decided on the topic of foot safety and safety shoes. Part of my decision was based on my love of shoes. The other part had to do with living a one-handed life and the awareness given to my feet. During my short informational speech I mentioned something that inspired my topic for this week’s podcast. I said, “I pay attention to the safety of my feet because I do not have two hands. Additionally, I do not use chainsaws and power tools.” 

Thanks for listening! I invite you to share this podcast, offer a comment, or leave some feedback.
