Electricity Kills

“What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

– Jane Goodall

Electricity kills.

But younger workers may not always be aware of the dangers of working around electricity. And their employers may not care enough to train them properly & make their safety a top priority.

Please take 2 minutes and watch this powerful new safety video about the tragic — and easily preventable — deaths of Tim Hamilton, 19, and Jeremy Bowley, 21. They died fourteen years apart while working at their respective summer jobs…due to the EXACT same circumstances.

This is unacceptable. And yet it happened.

If you are on social media, or have a young worker in your life, please share this video. Thank you.
