As you all know, we held our 3rd volunteer quarterly safety meeting of 2017 on Saturday, 9/9/17. We had a terrific turn out and we want to extend a big thank you to all of you that attended. We hope that this safety meeting was beneficial to you in regards to explaining OSHA's new crystalline silica rule that goes into effect on 9/23/17.
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, 9/20/17 at 4:00pm at our Barrington office. The safety training topic is: "Silica Safety!"
We will be explaining what silica is, when silica might be a hazard to a construction tradesman or tradeswoman, the hazards and health affects silica can have on humans, what construction tasks can 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 or revised silica safety standard is not trade specific. This is important for all trades that work in construction.
We look forward to seeing everyone on 9/20/17.
Have a Safe Day!
