OK, the podcast is here, Remember to subscribe to my podcast at iTunes and Stitcher. It was a phone call so the audio is not as clear as I would like but I think the content is great. Lane is a good guy that found a way to help at risk workers by creating a business he really believes in. Critical Mindset did not give me a dime to promote this, I did it because I think it’s a good idea. I am helping Lane out because this is something that will save lives. Saving lives should be on the mind of every tower site worker.
Lane Falkner, ex-marine, tower climber, hard worker, is the co-founder of the Critical Mindset. This ex-marine discusses how he wanted to take the marine mindset of being prepared from the battlefield to the tower site and other civilian jobs that are high risk. He started Critical Mindset with the intention of getting the gear on site to keep people alive until the professionals can get there. He is working full-time and doing this ventures part-time, so you can imagine how hard this guy works! So, just so everyone knows, this guy has not paid me a dime, his brother reached out to me and mentioned what Lane is trying to do. I looked at his website and saw what he offered. After talking to him I realized he is a good guy trying to do some good in this business as other hazardous jobs as well.
So in my conversation with Lane he goes over why he wanted to start this business where he could take the marine know how and help the “at-risk” workers. He came up with the trauma kits that are on his web page. This guy wants to make sure that everyone has everything they need to keep someone alive until the professionals get there, in other words if something bad happens that is beyond the first aid kit, like an emergency where the victim’s case would be considered trauma. In this case you need to do everything you can to keep that person alive until the professionals show up. When the EMTs show up, then they can take over but until then you need to be Johnny on the spot and keep them alive!
There are so many risks on the tower, not just the fall but the all threads sticking out of the tower could be devastating even on a partial fall. Here is something that could help you save someone from a wound that could kill you.
So if you know if this is something that your company should have, then say something. The other thing that I learned is that he has been providing them to the local police department because they didn’t have anything like this. I could not believe it but I guess many policemen don’t have this in their vehicle or with them.
