Next Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting on Saturday, 11/18/17 (Fall Protection)

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

We are just getting the word out that our 4th volunteer quarterly safety meeting of 2017 will be held on Saturday, November 18th at 7:00am. The safety training topic will be Fall Protection!  The safety meeting will be held at our office location in the warehouse at 28059 W. Commercial Ave., Barrington, IL 60010.

Why are we providing safety training on fall protection?  Because, falls are the #1 cause of fatalities in construction in the United States.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 937 fatalities in construction in 2015 and 364 of the fatalities were due to falls from an elevation accounting for 39% of all construction related fatalities.  This means we are averaging losing 1 construction worker per day in the U.S. due to falls.  All of these fall fatalities are preventable!  We want to provide fall protection safety training so that you don’t become one of these statistics. We want for all of our employees to live up to our safety mission statement which is: “Everyone Goes Home Alive and in the Same Condition as They Arrived; Your Loved Ones Count On It!”

We encourage everyone to attend for several reasons of which the most important reason is for your safety and for your loved ones. Each field employee (Non-Safety Advocates) who attends this volunteer safety training session will earn 400 safety training incentive points for our current year.

We look forward to seeing you on November 18th. Should you have any questions regarding fall protection or the upcoming safety meeting, please call our Safety Director, Peter Graham at (847) 417-1689.

Have a Safe Day!
