Be Safe - Don't Be A Turkey - manufacturing hazards have no holiday
Machine Safety is 24/7 - so don’t be a turkey. In the annual tradition, my family gathered around the Thanksgiving table as the turkey was served. The turkey was carved, we gave thanks, and we enjoyed a wonderful meal of abundance. And at the end the turkey was no more.
So, as the analogy goes, keep your eye on machine safety 24/7, follow OSHA’s directives by completing those risk assessments and complying with the regulations, and mitigate the identified hazards to tolerable risk levels. Hazards have no Holiday!
By following these simple steps you can avoid becoming the “turkey”. As we all know, the president only pardons one turkey per year at Thanksgiving. So my advice is - Don’t Be A Turkey.
Have a great Holiday!

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
