How You Can Benefit By Attending our Volunteer Aerial Lift Safety Training on 9/6/14

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

As most of you know, our next volunteer quarterly safety meeting is being 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.

Besides your own personal safety, here is another way that you could benefit by attending this volunteer safety training session.  Two of our largest projects that we are working on or soon to be working on require all tradesmen & women that will be working in aerial lifts to have had current aerial lift training and to be able to prove it with documentation.  We will be using a numerous amount of aerial lifts at both of these large projects.  By attending this volunteer safety training session on aerail lift safety, you will be qualified to work at these projects. With out having current/recent aerial lift training, we cannot place you at these projects.  Shortly after this training session, you will be provided with an aerial lift training wallet card to carry with you. 

This volunteer 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!
