We’ve made available on our website the video Other Reasons, streaming option only. This is an educational safety video designed to supplement your company’s electrical safety training. An instructor’s guide is also available for download.

The stories of Mark Standifer and Donnie Johnson are well-known in the electrical industry. On the days of their relative accidents, they allowed “other reasons” to keep them from working safely. One of our earlier blogs describes the video in more detail, which you can read in full here.

Their circumstances are examples of how each of us, in our own jobs, must daily make choices of our own. We decide what we value more at the moment: getting a job done quickly or getting it done safely even if it takes more time to do so. All of us need to be reminded of the seriousness of working safely and the broad scope the consequences of an accident can reach.
