Health and Safety

You're all probably wondering what the heck this is a picture of! Well, this is some basic health and safety equipment for my job. In our line of work we can be exposed to a wide variety of hazards, especially chemical hazards and the possibility of injury from heavy equipment being operated on our sites. My office mate, Heather, and I don't spend a lot of time in the field, so we both found it interesting when we returned to our office today and found these little packages of health and safety gear on our desks. What you are looking at are some nitrile gloves (generally impervious to most chemicals), ear plugs, and an orange safety vest. I like the cute note saying that a hard hat is coming soon! How exciting!!
