STS Highlights: August 2023
This is going to sound really familiar but, as I write this, it’s STILL dangerously hot outside in a vast majority of the country. For that reason, I am keeping the information about heat-related illnesses in the August Newsletter.
We are quickly approaching the end of Summer Break and the beginning of the new school year. While children may not be outside playing during the day, they are still catching school buses in the morning and walking home in the afternoons. Remember to be aware of your surroundings while driving and safely share the road with pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcycles, school buses, and other automobiles. Enjoy and use this month’s resources.
The goal with these monthly resources is always to help elevate your career, department, or organization. As always, we take pride in helping you meet your training requirements and goals.
Thank you for your time,
