Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting on 5/21/16

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

Just getting the word out that we have scheduled our 2nd volunteer quarterly safety meeting for 2016 and it will be held on Saturday, May 21st at 7:00am at our Barrington office location.

The safety meeting topic will be: Struck-by Hazards which is part of the OSHA Focus 4.

What is the OSHA Focus 4 you ask?  The OSHA Focus 4 are what OSHA considers the 4 main causes of the most fatalities on construction job sites.  The OSHA Focus 4 topics consists of fall hazards, electrocution hazards, struck-by hazards and caught-between hazards.  For example, OSHA reports that in 2007, there were 311 construction deaths that were caused by "struck-by" type incidents.  These include being struck by a crane's swing radius, moving equipment, materials, objects falling from overhead, vehicle, an aerial lift and many other things that can strike a person and injure them or cause a fatality.

Our quarterly safety meetings are the backbone of our safety culture.  This is where we all come together as one team to help keep us all on the same page with safety and to help us live up to our Safety Mission Statement - "Everyone Goes Home Alive and in the Same Condition as They Arrived; Your Loved Ones Count On It!"

Each employee that attends this safety meeting will earn 400 safety incentive points towards our 2016 Volunteer Safety Training Incentive Program.  Employees can also pick up your items that you ordered from last year’s volunteer safety incentive program as we will be distributing the items at this meeting. 

If you have any questions about this volunteer safety meeting, please contact your Superintendent or our Safety Director, Peter Graham. 

We look forward to seeing you!

Have a Safe Day!
