Almost everything in a workplace setting today operates on electricity. Electrical equipment is potentially hazardous and can cause serious shock and burn injuries if improperly used or maintained. If a part of the body comes into contact with the electrical circuit, a shock will occur. The current enters the body at one point and leaves at another point. This passage of electricity can cause great pain, burns, and even fatalities.

How about when you wake up and see that the prior day's rain has frozen all over the place? Ah yes, this sounds like the ever familiar seasons we call fall and winter. This is a time where shovels, brushes and blowers are the tool of choice in garages and sheds all over! It sounds easy when we need to prepare and manage snow and ice; however it is not that simple. There has to be awareness to ourselves that this is a battle that can be unexpected, unruly and downright intense!
