Next Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting on 9/6/14!

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

We have scheduled our third volunteer quarterly safety meeting of 2014 and it will be held on Saturday, September 6th at 7:00am.  The main safety topic for the meeting will be Aerial Lift Safety.  We use aerial lifts almost daily at one job site or another and it is important to know the do's and dont's of working in aerial lifts.  Struck-By and Caught-Between type injuries are 2 of OSHA's Focused Four topics as they cause a signifacant amount of fatailities in the construction industry.  We will include training on how to prevent Struck-By and Caught-Between type injuries involving aerial lifts.  We feel this is a very important topic as we use a numerous amount of aerial lifts on a given day and employees are required to have had aerial lift training before they can operate an aerial lift.  This safety training session will be held at our usual location at our shop at 28059 W. Commercial Ave. in Barrington, IL.  We will continue to advertise this meeting as we get closer to the meeting date.  In the meantime, we are asking for everyone's help to spread the word of the meeting date, time and topic. 
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!
