Carbon Monoxide Awareness

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless, toxic gas which interferes with the oxygen-carrying capacity of blood. CO is non-irritating and can overcome without warning. Many die from CO poisoning, usually while using gas-powered tools and generators in buildings or spaces without adequate ventilation.

Lifting Safety

In a large facilities department such as ours, lifting is very much a part of our everyday jobs. But because it is something many of us do so often, we tend to do it in auto-mode, without thinking first about proper technique. Lifting incorrectly can result
in a variety of injuries, with back strain being the most common. Using proper lifting techniques can save you from pain today, as well as years down the road.
