Quarterly Safety Meeting Show Up Rates - Awesome Turnout!

Good morning to all I.D.I. employees:  We wrapped up our quarterly safety makeup meeting yesterday evening and we have now caluculated our show up percentages following our 1st quarterly safety meeting (Q.S.M.) of 2011.  We had a total of 79 out of 83 active employees attend the meeting for a show up rate of 95%.  We also had a total of 44 out of 45 Safety Coordinators in attendance for a total Safety Coordinator show up rate of 98%.  This was our record turn out in International Decorator's history.  We want to extend a huge thank you to all of the employees that attended our 1st quarterly Q.S.M. for 2011.  Let's strive to have our safest year ever which is good for everyone.  Let's keep the momentum going into our next Q.S.M. which is tentatively scheduled for May 14th, 2011.  As we get closer to the next meeting date, we will continue to update you as to the safety meeting topic and confirmed date of the meeting.  In the meantime, continue to look out for each other to keep our family members from getting injured.

Have a Safe Day!
