So our Corporate Overlords have assigned us a workplace safety pamphlet to read followed by a workplace safety video to watch.
It wasn't nearly as bad as previous “training sessions” where we had to watch videos of text slides as someone read them aloud slowly and badly.
this time we got to read the pamphlet at our own speed and watch a scare mongering video about the proper response to a workplace shooting—flee,
hide or as a last resort, fight.
the video lacked proper closure as it cut just as the group of office workers were forced to fight the lone gunman shooting up the office,
so we never get to see if they succeeded or not.
I found this German forklift safety video
much more entertaining than what I watched.
Funny to think the Germans have a better sence of work humor than us Americans.

simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
