Crazy Weather - Work Safe

Crazy Weather - Work Safe

It has been a crazy start to the weekend with this morning’s severe storms, flooding, tornadoes, and may continue with the forecasted high humidity and additional storms.  Stay safe and follow all of your employer’s safety guidelines.  Whether you are working for your employer or helping your friends and neighbors remember, the most dangerous hazards can be the ones we don’t see.

The IBEW was founded by Henry Miller who fought for safer working conditions.  Miller’s last job was for the Potomac Electric Light and Power Co. in Washington, D.C.  The night he died, he was trying to restore power after a storm when, according to an 1896 issue of the Electrical Worker, “he came into contact with a high-tension wire carrying 2,200 volts and received a shock knocking him off the pole.”
