We have jokes!
A mathematician, a physicist and an engineer.
A mathematician, physicist, and engineer are all trying to find the volume of a yellow bouncy ball.
The mathematician gets his calipers out and measures the diameter, then evaluates the integral.
The physicist fetches a bowl of water, drops the ball in and measures the displacement.
The engineer strolls up with book in hand, checks for a serial number and looks up the volume in his yellow bouncy ball table.
EAD is always staying up-to-date with industry news and insights. Today we wanted to share a few articles that caught our attention.

A lot of companies pay lip service to safety. A lot of companies say safety is their guiding principle. At EAD, we ingrain safety into everything we do, day in and day out. Our goal is to make safety part of our everyday lives by incorporating it into our business practices.
Our employees discuss Safety Snaps every day in our morning huddle. We have an educational session every Friday focused entirely on safety. Every Thursday, EAD shares Lessons Learned so we can all learn from the mistakes of others. We incorporate safety discussions into our engineering designs. We share our safety culture with our clients.
Our goal is to ensure everyone we work with – co-workers, clients, vendors, and contractors – all go home safely every night. To accomplish this, we hire employees that walk the walk and talk the talk. It is not always easy having a hard conversation with someone about safe work practices, but we do it because we care about those around us.
