Just getting the word out that our next Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting will be held on Saturday, 9/10/16 at 7:00am at our Barrington office location. We have not yet determined the safety training topic, however, we wanted to advise everyone of the date.
In the meantime, keep safety at the forefront of your mind with each task that you perform. Everyone should be participating in the mandatory 5-minute morning daily safety huddles to help promote everyone performing in a safe manner. Some quick reminders - 100% hard hats, safety glasses & work boots. Check your extension cords and electrical cords daily and remove them from service if defective. Face shield and fire extinguishers required for chop saw and partner saw use. Fall protection required for all employees exposed to falls of 6' or more to lower levels. No standing on the top 2 steps of portable A-frame step ladders and can only use in the fully open position with the spreader arms locked. Keep an eye on each other and help keep our I.D.I. family members safe so they can go home each day to their loved ones in the same condition as they arrived.
We look forward to seeing you at our 3rd volunteer quarterly safety meeting on 9/10/16.
Should you have any questions related to safety, please discuss with your lead field supervisor, your Superintendent and/or contact our Safety Director, Peter Graham at (847) 417-1689.
Have a Safe Day!
