This monday the most important thing to consider when planning for a solar eclipse isn’t your location within the path of totality, your distance to the centerline, or even the weather. It’s eye safety. If you attempt to view an eclipse incorrectly, there’s a really great chance your souvenir of the eclipse will be irreparable eye damage or even blindness. We all want to make lifelong memories on August 21, but those memories should be indelibly imprinted onto our minds, not our retinas. So please be sure to wear your NASA approved safety glasses!

Safety is extremely important when it comes to elevators as well! An elevator mechanic must be skilled at many levels. They must be a welder, a plumber, a carpenter, an electrician, etc. In addition, the elevator trade is also the most dangerous trade in the building industry. Knowing this, safety is paramount for Genesis Elevator Company. So much so, we pull all of our field into the office once each quarter and spend the day discussing and focusing upon safety requirements. It is our mission to provide a top tier service to all of our customers and to do that in such a way that everyone in the Genesis family arrives safely at home with their family at the end of each day.

So just as we take safety seriously in our job, please make sure to equip each of your loved ones with the correct safety gear for a once in a lifetime chance to see the eclipse!
