Tomorrow (July 25) is National Hire A Veteran Day. According to Navy Federal Credit Union, more than 250,000 people transition out of military service. As these service members transition back into civilian life, one of the biggest hurdles they face is finding employment. Going from military service back into a regular 9-to-5 job is a large adjustment, and it can be difficult to find the right opportunities and resources to assist with this process. That’s why in 2017 Dan Caporale, founder of Hire our Heroes, an organization that helps to ease the transition from the military to the corporate world, established National Hire A Veteran Day. This day calls on corporate America to provide opportunities and hire more veterans.

“The best way to honor a veteran is to hire one,” Caporale says.

The tradition of shooting off fireworks to celebrate the 4th of July dates back centuries, to 1776 to be exact. While fireworks are used to celebrate many an occasion today, the 4th is still the holiday that garners the most pyrotechnic displays (the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks display is the largest in the country, in case you were curious). With fireworks however come risks, so today we’re looking at how to keep yourself safe while celebrating. In reading these tips please remember: only use fireworks if they are legal where you live!

One of scariest parts of being a trade professional in the electrical field is the possibility of getting hurt, specifically the risk of electrocution. It is estimated that there are up to 30,000 nonfatal shock injuries each year, many of which do not get reported. When looking at reported injuries, there are around 300 deaths and 4,000 electrical related injuries among the U.S. workforce each year, ranking electrocution sixth among causes of work place death in the United States.

A commitment to protecting electricians has always been a priority of Klein Tools. Over the years, we at Klein have heard numerous stories about how insulated tools have saved the lives of users. Take a look at one such story below, from Klein Tools user John OConnor:

“A pair of Klein linesman pliers saved my father’s life.

56 years ago (when I was 14), I helped my father do electrical work during my summer vacation from school.

As states have slowly begun to reopen over the last several weeks, and restrictions have started lifting, many people are trying to get back to their regular routines. While some companies have given employees the option to work from home indefinitely, most of us are starting to head back into the job and get back into the normal swing of things. With this, however, comes fear from many people that a second wave of COVID-19 could come later in the year.

As the world awaits relief from this new public health concern, a large number of traditional office workers have started to make arrangements in case they need to work from home for another extended period of time. More than a quarter of people recently surveyed have said that they plan to make changes or repairs to their home to prepare for the possibility of sheltering in place again. For many, this includes outfitting home offices, upgrading internet speed and capacity, and making overdue home repairs.
