Other Safety Talk Website

I was sitting at my very safe house and got a response to a post, “Safety Guy – look at my site – it is really good and has good stuff, you can link from your site over and that would be really cool.”

So I look, and it is pretty good, so here it is:

Safety Talk Ideals

Now – did he link to MY site?  No, he did not.  Sort of like ‘hey, do me a favor and I return favor’ etiquette thing on the inter webs, but, it does have good info…

Although Safety Talk Idea Guy – if you can make your talks downloadable, that makes them more popular.  Just sayin’

OSHA Compliance Assistance Tools

So if you have no clue, or need a guide on what OSHA actually wants, they have these nifty tools that can help.  These cover General Industry, Construction, and Healthcare.  Being OSHA compliant is not the ‘end all’ (remember, OSHA is the minimum you should do), but it is a good place to start.

You know what to do:

General Industry

Construction

Healthcare

 

Problem with Videos

A visiter pointed out that the tab on top, “Free Videos” brought up the videos, but they could not be played, nor downloaded.  I looked – no idea as they are simply links.  Until I can fix this, I have removed the tab as….well…I want my site to actually work.

The videos do still work, and can be downloaded.  Go to the search bar and simply type, “Video” and the individual posts will come up.  Then to download, press play, briefly, and hover near the left and a download menu will appear.  You will have multiple options to download.

My apologies for this oversight.
