The EH&S Management Version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Solutions for Environmental, Health and Safety

(Disclaimer:  My Daughter Loves Snow White, and I don't tell her this version of the story - I think she may never ask to hear it again if I did....that being said, any reference or likeness used in this post is used purely in good fun and parody - I'm actually a huge fan of the story and those who re-tell it so well.)

He finally moved to DVDs, and now Blockbusters are folding faster than an origami competition.  We're now working with him on NetFlix - it's a long road ahead.
