Silica Safety Training at the 9/9/17 Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting!

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

Just letting everyone know that we are switching gears in regards to the safety training topic for our next volunteer quarterly safety meeting that is being held on Saturday, 9/9/17 at 7:00am.  We had been advertising that we were going to be training on fall protection.  We will now be training on Silica Safety.  OSHA has developed a new Silica Safety Standard that goes into effect on 9/23/17 and since we are all getting together on 9/9/17, the timing could not be better to provide the required silica training.

We will be explaining what silica is, the hazards and health affects silica can have on humans, what construction tasks cause silica exposures, procedures to reduce and/or eliminate silica exposures, how to protect yourself from silica dust and we will be training on all the key components of this new standard.  This new silica safety standard is not trade specific.  This is important for all trades that work in construction.

We look forward to seeing everyone on 9/9/17.

Have a Safe Day!
