Today I received some safety training at work. The training alone would seem like normal procedure for maintenance department. The thing that doesn’t seem normal with the training is that it took two deaths in less than one week to convince management that training was needed. One man lost control of a saw and cut his throat, and the other was electrocuted. I don’t believe that either of these men received proper safety training. I hope these unfortunate deaths will make the people in charge consider some type of periodic training before something goes wrong, because safety training saves lives.
