My seventeen year old thinks I need an Apple Watch. She has one and, from what I’ve seen, it’s strapped to her left wrist to notify her that the iPhone she’s holding in her right hand just received a snap-gram insta-text. To convince me to also get one, she describes the features designed for old people and informs me that it can “track my fitness goals.” Yawn. And, she continues, “It can monitor my heart rate, my breathing and tell me how many steps I take in a day.” Wait. What?
It can count my steps? Only a genius watch can do that! Not because I am working hard to “get my steps in,” but because most days it seems I take two steps forward and three steps back!
Speaking of steps, you might consider registering for our OSHA 7505 Incident Investigation class where we explore six steps to investigating workplace incidents and accidents.
