Safety - Still On A Roll!

Good morning to all I.D.I. employees,

Just updating everyone on our streak of consecutive days worked between lost-time injuries.  Our last lost-time injury was 307 days ago so we passed the 300 day milestone.  Our next milestone goal is to have worked 1 full year without a lost-time injury so we are 58 days away from that goal.  I will continue to keep everyone updated as to when we reach the 365 day or 1 year milestone.  After we surpass that, our next milestone is the 435 day mark which was our best run in the past 15 years which we did in 2008. 

Lets keep this safety train rolling straight down the track and shoot for our upcoming milestones.

To do this, we all need to be on the same page and looking out for one another. If you observe someone not working in a safe manner, please reach out to them for their own well-being and on behalf of their loved ones and talk to them about stopping what they are doing unsafely. It is in all of our best interest that all of us perform in a safe appropriate manner. Injuries are no fun for anyone especially the injured employee and his family members. Your loved ones depend on you to work safely and to come home to them in an injury-free and healthy manner. The next time you catch yourself working unsafe, ask yourself why? Why am I working unsafe?  Is it because I feel I don't have time to go grab a pair of safety glasses? Is it because I don't have time to go get safety rails for my scaffold because I have to get the job done? The jobs always do get done and they get done in a more professional and appropriate manner when done safely. If an injury occurs at a project, the job won't make any money. Just like production, when it comes to safety, do it right and do it right the first time!

Keep in mind I.D.I.'s Safety Mission Statement: "Everyone Goes Home Alive and in the Same Condition as They Arrived; Your Loved Ones Count On It!"
Have a Safe Day!

New Field Safety Committee Has Formed!

Good morning to all I.D.I. employees,

Just letting everyone know that we have formed our new 2014 Field Safety Committee.  The following are the new members and their respective divisions:  Framer - Keith Rehn, Drywaller - Ricardo Villagomez, Acoustic Carpenter - Brian Vicicondi, Painter - Dennis Johnson & Taper - Rafael Nunez. 

Our first meeting with the new group is tomorrow, Tuesday, 3/18/14 at 3:00pm.  If you have any safety concerns that you would like addressed, you can ask the Field Safety Committee Members to bring your concerns to the meeting and we will discuss them with the goal of coming up with a resolution. 

Please, congratulate them (make fun of them) when you see them.  These 5 employees along with me, Safety Pete, will work on safety agenda items to help make all of our employees careers safer.  What they do is very meaningful towards your safety and for the sake of your loved ones.

Have a Safe Day!
