Injury-Free July Goal (Final Update)

Good morning to all I.D.I. employees:  I just wanted to provide everyone with a final update regarding our final results of how we did in July as far as going injury-free.  As we reported previously, we did have one minor injury on 7/18/12 which involved debris in the eye.  This was a no-lost time injury.  That was our only July incident that required medical care.  The following shows our past 3 years of how many injuries we had during the month of July:  2011 = 3, 2010 = 2, 2009 = 5.  So with that being said, we did have a successful reduction in our injury frequency during the month of July for 2012 being that we had one minor incident involving medical care.
Great job everyone on coming together as a team and reducing our July injury frequency rate as compared to recent history.  We have 3 months to go in our current insurance policy year which ends on 10/31/12.  We are currently in the midst of having one of our best years over the past 13 years.  As most of you know, we have a safety goal regarding our injury costs.  Our goal is to be at $0.50 cents injury cost per man hours worked.  As we speak, we are currently at $0.22 cents injury cost per man hours worked.  If we can finish out the next 3 months with going injury-free, we will have completed our safety year worked as a company over the past 13 years. 
What does all of this mean to you?  It means that you are working for a safe company that cares about you. It means that our insurance premium will go down and this will give us a more competitive advantage on our future bids to obtain work.  This in turn means that we would have more projects that we need to man with employees meaning more people employed and able to provide for their families.  
Please continue to do your part and do everything in your power to not sustain an injury. Everyone in the company benefits when there are no injuries, especially you and your loved ones!

Have a Safe Day!
