Coldest Day Of The Year - Keep an Eye On Each Other!

Good morning to all I.D.I. employees:  Today looks like our coldest day of the year as it is -4 degrees outside as I am typing this notice.  You are advised to dress in layers of clothing.  Wear gloves and try to keep them dry.  You should also wear a knit hat under your hard hat as most of our body heat is lost through our head. If employees need extra breaks from the cold, they are advised to discuss it with their foreman and in turn the foreman should notify and discuss this with his/her Superintendent.  If you notice any signs of hypothermia or frost bite, get to a warm area immediately and notify your foreman.  Of course if there is any emergency due to the extreme cold, call 911.  Keep an eye on each other.
Have a Safe Day!

Safety Meeting This Saturday, 2/12/11 at 7:00am

Just a reminder that our next company-wide quarterly safety meeting is this Saturday, 2/12/11 at 7:00am.  This meeting will be a little different than our typical quarterly safety meeting as we are going to all meet together for about 1/2 hour and then we are going to break out into trade specific groups.  We will be providing trade specific safety training on some of the various fastening tools used by our carpenters, acoustic carpenters, framers and drywall hangers, respirator training and fit testing for our painters, and various safety topics and discussion with our tapers.  This should be an exciting and interactive safety meeting.  Please plan on attending to help sustain our safety culture at International Decorators.  You might just learn something that will prevent you from sustaining an injury.  I learn something from all of you at every one of these meetings.  These meetings are about communicating and exchanging safety information to help prevent injuries to yourselves, your friends around you & the public.  These safety meetings are all about you which starts with our safety mission statement:  "Everyone Goes Home Alive and in the Same Condition as They Arrived; Your Loved Ones Count On It!"  Please plan on attending; if not for yourself, attend for your loved ones.

Have a Safe Day and we will see you on Saturday!
