A new promo video was release at the Tennessee Association of Professional Surveyors’ Annual Conference. Enjoy.

 

Measure it with a micrometer, mark it with chalk, and cut it with an ax.

Very well done and spot-on message!

Might have liked to see a hard hat when working in the ROW  😉

I've always wondered what the hell good a hard hat does you when working out in the open?

Please note that I said that about a hard hat in the ROW. As in right of way where it is often a requirement.  Hey if people wanna work without personal protection that's fine but they might end up with a fine.  And I am not letting anybody on my crew work without PPE where it is required. I had a bolt that was flung up from a truck tire that put a heck of a mark on my hard hat and would have done worse to my bare head if I was stubborn enough to wanna work without a hard hat in ROW. I don't think that sending a message to perspected surveyors that we condone flaunting the rules and work in a dangerous manner is a really good message. I just suggested that in this otherwise amazing video that that detail could have been added.

For whatever reason motorists show more respect to a person in a hard hat, it sends the message that you are working and have jurisdiction whereas just jumping out  a vest makes them feel like you are an outsider to be disregarded.

The motorist is a fickle animal and understanding their behavior can be difficult but I think a hard hat does more than a sign to command their respect. 

Purely anecdotal analysis of course, and I wear eye protection when working in the woods so I might just be more into ppe than most.

Some time ago I saw a news film (might have been on Country Calendar) about a totally blind farmer, who with the assistance of his wife was still working the farm. He lost sight in the first eye by what they think was a stray shotgun pellet, from a shot fired by a neighbouring farmer. He lost the second eye when tractor mowing a field, he was looking back at the mower and ran over some fence wire that was hidden in the grass and it flicked up and hit him in the eye.

Fortunately, as per the video, natural sun protection, i.e. face-fuzz, is in fashion at the moment.
