    “Office Do-It-All”

    “Cell Phone Zombie”
    Technology is my life. It’s how I relax and how I stay connected with coworkers, friends and family. I can keep my eyes glued to the screen and still walk, drive and easily handle other mundane tasks.

    “Worksite Menace”
    Hard hat, vest, eye protection, steel-toed boots, blah, blah, blah.... It’s too much to remember in addition to my demanding job. I’ve been working here long enough, I’ll wear the gear I want.

    Watch our Safety Chaos video series to get a better idea of how chaos can strike when safety is ignored.
