Well, the holidays are upon us and I hope everyone gets to enjoy Thanksgiving and start getting prepared for Christmas. This is the time of year to enjoy family, friends and fellowship and reflect on the many blessings bestowed upon us each day.
I would like to remind everyone about our upcoming lunch meeting on November 19th at Supreme Japanese Buffet and Hibachi located at 1180 S. Main Street in Kernersville. The actual technical session will be held from 12-1pm but we have scheduled the room from 11:30am-1pm, so feel free to come earlier to enjoy your lunch before our speaker gets started and network with other members. This will be a great meeting with August Vernon from Forsyth County speaking on Workplace Violence/Attacks.
Additionally as a reminder our joint Holiday Social with CHMM, LEPC, and ACGIH will be Thursday, December 19th from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Ham’s downtown Greensboro. Come out and network with everyone and get in the holiday spirit.
As I mentioned before Thanksgiving will be here soon and a lot of your time may be spent in the kitchen. Please take a look at these safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA):
- Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.
- Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently.
- Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 feet away.
- Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.
- Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags.
- Keep knives out of the reach of children.
- Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.
- Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.
- Never leave children alone in room with a lit a candle.
- Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.
I WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY AND SAFE THANKSGIVING!
