I.D.I. Forming a New 2012 Field Safety Committee

As you all know, International Decorators has 2 Safety Committees.  One consists of management personnel and the other consists of field personnel.  Our 2011 Field Safety Committee is coming to an end and we are seeking field personnel to fill the vacant positions.  We are looking for a framer, drywall hanger, taper, painter and an acoustic carpenter to serve a 1 year volunteer commitment as a Field Safety Committee member.  This committee meets once every other month with the Safety Director (Safety Pete) starting in March of 2012 meaning that you would serve for 6 meetings during a 1 year period.  The meetings are typically held on Wednesdays at our office from 3:00pm – 4:30pm.    The meeting agenda typically consists of:
ü  A review of our safety goals.
ü  Recent injuries discussion & prevention methods.
ü  Updating and developing safety policies.
ü  Safety hazards that have been identified in the field and what we as a company can do to eliminate them.
ü  Future safety training needs, etc.
This is basically a safety brain storming session and we are looking for your input to help us to sustain and improve on our “Safety Culture.”  The main purpose of the Field Safety Committee is about ensuring that you and your fellow co-workers have a safe environment to work in.  If you are interested in making a difference and helping out yourself, your co-workers and your employer, please contact Peter Graham by e-mail at  Here’s a little carrot – each meeting includes pizza, some comedy from Safety Pete and some end of the year recognition.
