I guess our job has more dangers than I entirely considered before. I mean, I task in a craft beer brewery, where there are plenty of things that can definitely hurt you in a significant way. There are tons of tepid boiling water, spitting steam, slippery ladders and floors that could genuinely cause you dire physical disfigure… however luckily for me, I manage to avoid most of the dangerous action. Since I task in the office, managing logistics for the corporation each afternoon, I entirely don’t have to come into contact with as much of the dangerous production as other people do. That’s why I was shocked when I had a recent work-related mishap at condo which caused good injury. It all began when I was given a portion of “homework beer” from our work, meaning tons of cans to bring condo and sample for QC. I began lugging all the brew home, however soon found that I couldn’t drink it as fast as it was assigned. Soon, I had an entire closet of beer saved up, just waiting for guests to help myself and others consume it. The only complication is, our thermostat didn’t get the memo about beer having particular storage conditions. I arrived condo one afternoon to find that our A/C equipment had abruptly shut down that afternoon. My thermostat had short circuited, and the central cooling component powered down hours ago in the middle of a blazing tepid Summer afternoon. When I walked into the house, I promptly found myself laying on the floor. My beer closet had exploded in the heat and humidity, and beer flowed freely out onto the tile floor where I now lay. After slipping on our homework beer and splitting our leg, I took Heating, Ventilation plus A/C repair and OSHA safety a lot more seriously.
