2/25/12 Quarterly Safety Meeting at Kropp Equipment in Streamwood!

***IMPORTANT - Please note the location of the meeting! ***
All employees are invited to attend our 1st quarterly safety meeting for 2012 which will be held on Saturday, February 25th from 7:00am to about 9:00am.  Please note that the meeting will not be at International Decorator’s office.  The meeting will be held at our aerial lift provider, Kropp Equipment, located at 1339 Yorkshire Drive in Streamwood, IL 60107.  Kropp Equipment will be providing aerial lift safety training including emergency descent procedures.  All employees who attend the safety training session will receive an aerial lift identification training card from Kropp Equipment.  We last held an aerial lift safety training meeting in August, 2009, so this will serve as a good refresher for the veterans and maybe some new safety training for new hires.  As far as parking at Kropp Equipment, we can park on both sides of Yorkshire Drive.  Kropp Equipment is also checking in with their neighbor to see if we can park in their lot.  We will provide more information on parking as we get closer to the meeting. 

Your field safety committee brought up an excellent point during our December safety committee meeting in regards to the emergency descent procedures from aerial lifts.  We have not provided training on this topic in quite some time.  Kropp Equipment is going to demonstrate the emergency descent procedures at the quarterly safety meeting.  Following their demonstration, we are going to look for volunteers to perform an emergency descent. 

We look forward to seeing everyone at Kropp Equipment on Saturday, 2/25/12.  In the meantime, keep looking out for each other and be safe!

Have a Safe Day!
