A man who was running for a city office fell from his ladder and died from his injuries the day before the election.This story is especially sad because he was living his life and making plans for the future when one accident changed not only his life, but also the lives of those around him.

Let’s talk for a minute about how these accidents impact loved ones.

This man was running for a public office. He was a well-respected member of the community and, while the article does not go into detail, most likely had a family too. This accident took a well-respected member of the community. It took away a husband, father and brother too. All these people were impacted by an accident that most likely could have been prevented.

Let’s talk for a minute about what we can do to prevent these types of accidents. Here are just a few things we can do:

-Develop a safety guidelines handbook and put the guidelines into practice. Then make sure to enforce the new guidelines.

-Address safety issues to help others be safe.

-Be a good example by practicing safety ourselves.

-Plan and carry out regular safety training for your company.

Let us commit to help ourselves and those around us be safer.
