Dear Reader,


Welcome to the last newsletter of 2015.  This has been a great year full of challenging new projects that we were able to share with you in case studies.  This quarter’s feature is on something a bit different – the Fukushima nuclear disaster.  We have delved into the before, during, and after of the Tsunami that caused the disaster to answer this question:  Is nuclear power safe?

In addition to our article, Fukushima:  Before, During, and After the Tsunami, we are continuing our Spotlight on Safety series with the topic of lockout, tag out.  Take the quiz to see if you know what you need to know about the lockout, tag out process.
