Here is a great Hierarchy of Controls graphic that I took from either the OSHA or NIOSH website. For all you up and coming safety guys, remember this graphic. If you can eliminate the hazard, that is the best possible solution and PPE is the last. PPE depends upon the worker actually wearing it, which all know doesn’t always happen. They must also wear the PPE properly, which we also know doesn’t always happen.
If you guys get some time, email over some stories where you had direct involvement with some of the controls above and I’ll post them on the blog.
This advertisement was up as soon as you entered the Old City through the Jaffa Gate. It just doesn’t seem right does it? Jerusalem was interesting, a walled city within a city. Inside the walls, be prepared for a full assault on your wallet. There is a lot of neat stuff and your credit card should work fine. My advice, be there early, you can get great deals if you’re the first one in the shop. It’s a sign of bad luck if the first customer doesn’t buy something, so you can get a great deal. Also, if you’re there early, there isn’t much of a crowd. It seemed like the tour busses showed up around 1000 in the morning.
