As you all know, we held our 2nd volunteer quarterly safety meeting of 2016 on Saturday, 5/21/16. We offer a volunteer make-up meeting for those that could not attend the regularly scheduled safety meeting either due to working for I.D.I. on the Saturday of the meeting or due to unforeseen circumstances, etc.
The volunteer quarterly safety make-up meeting is being held on Wednesday, 6/8/16 at 4:00pm at our Barrington office in our warehouse. The safety training topic is: "Struck-by & Caught Between Hazards" which are 2 parts 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.
We are asking everyone to help spread the word to all of our employees so they have the opportunity to attend.
Also if you are planning on attending, please contact our Safety Director, Peter Graham, no later than Tuesday, 6/7/16 at 3:00pm to let him know as we need an approximate head-count for the meeting as we have to prepare materials and for chair rental purposes. Peter can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or text to (847) 417-1689.
Have a Safe Day!
