It's been awhile since I've posted, but things are changing and this venue will be utilized a lot in the future.  This month has been a busy one, with a long drive to South Dakota, a busy week on my West Texas circuit, then back to way west Texas to visit Big Bend, then on to Belton for Expo.
Utilicom Safety is under going some big, new and exciting changes theses days.  We are looking at more mobile training type services, more auditing (mock OSHA audits), more use of social media, and a big cooperative effort with Etex Telephone to better serve the telecommunications industry throughout the country.
If you're going to Belton, look me up.  I'd love to visit with you.

Excavation Safety

For some of the Utilicom Safety family we are conducting a multiple part excavation safety series for the next few Rappsessions. Others will begin this same series next month, and still others the following. A special note to all involved in trenching and excavation work, please don't allow yourself to get into an excavation, whether it is a traditional trench, bell hole, or shallow opening, watch for the warning signs of wall collapse! Be ever mindful of fissures, cracks, loose pebbles trickling down wall face, seeping water of drastic changes in temperature! If that voice in the back of your head even starts to whisper to you that things don't look o feel right, get out of the hole! Ask yourself, are these walls sloped to the proper ratio? Have we classified this soil correctly? Should I be in a trench box? If we only think earnestly about what we are doing and the long term impact of our inappropriate actions, accidents can and will be avoided!

Family Tragedy

This past weekend (Saturday, October 8th) my father, Richard Rapp, was killed in an auto accident in Uvalde, TX.  Being that I am a safety instructor and that I promote defensive and safe driving practices on a regular basis, it made this accident even more painfull.  What could I have done, or said that may have prevented something like this.  I know, after much thought, soul searching and prayer, that there was really nothing that I could have done.  My father had Alzheimers.  I would encourage each of you, if you have someone close to you with this disease to visit the Alzheimers Association website and watch the several videos on driving that they have posted there and share them with your loved ones.  If you have a desire to donate for the cure of this horrible disease, please do so.

Look at the size of that....

Some crab meat I took out of one joint of an Alaskan King crab leg. Dang!

Up close and personal

This bald eagle stayed put for awhile as we parked next to him. He eventually got mad and flew off. Adak is beautiful!
