Next Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting on 5/31/14!!!!

Good afternoon to all I.D.I. employees: 

We have scheduled our second volunteer quarterly safety meeting of 2014 and it will be held on Saturday, May 31st at 7:00am. This safety training session will be held at our usual location at our shop at 28059 W. Commercial Ave. in Barrington, IL. The main safety topic for the meeting will be Behavior Based Safety being presented by Dan Balles.  Dan is a Senior Risk Control Consultant from the Willis Group which is I.D.I.’s insurance agency.  Dan has customized this safety training towards the types of work we perform at I.D.I. to help us in the battle against injuries.  After Dan completes his session, we will then move on to reading the letters and showing the videos that were submitted by employees loved ones.  You may recall that back in March, we sent a letter to all employee’s homes asking I.D.I. employees to have a loved one(s), a family member, a spouse, a child, a parent or someone who cares about you, to write a letter or submit a video as to why they want or need for you to work safe.  We received in a total 5 letters and 4 videos.  We advised in the letter that we would select the best three and reward them with a $100 gift card.  We have contacted the winners and we have invited them to attend the May 31st volunteer quarterly safety meeting so we can present them with their gift cards. We received in a variety of letters and videos and each one was terrific and really nailed it as far as what we were hoping to receive.  We can't wait to show everyone what was submitted because each one is unique in their own way. Thank you to the family members who took the time to tell us why you want your loved one to work safe and for making this contest a success. We hope to see all of you on May 31st.

If you have any questions about this volunteer safety meeting, please contact our Safety Director, Peter Graham. Peter can be reached by e-mail at or by calling (847) 417-1689.

Have a Safe Day!
