Next Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting on Saturday, 9/8/18 at 7:00am!

Good morning to all IDI employees,  
Below is our volunteer quarterly safety meeting notice that is going out to all of you in the mail within the next few days. We look forward to seeing everyone on September 8th! 

Volunteer Quarterly Safety 
Meeting Notice

You are invited to attend our 3rd volunteer quarterly safety meeting of 2018. 

Who is invited?   All IDI employees 
When is the meeting?   Saturday, September, 2018
                                          7:00am to 9:00am

Where is the meeting?  At our Barrington Shop/Office
                                       (28059 W. Commercial Ave., Barrington)

What is the topic?  Tool Safety!
We all use various tools for a variety of tasks.  Depending on the tool being used and the task being performed with the tool comes a variety of safety requirements such as the correct personal protective equipment to wear, ensuring we have the correct blade on a saw, working blade guards in place, using the right tool for the task, inspecting tools prior to use, tool user using good ergonomics (body positioning) while using a tool, repetitive use of tools and other tool related safety items.  As tool technology improves, we purchase new tools and we want to ensure we are all on the same page with tool safety.  According to recent data, there are over 400,000 emergency room visits due to tool related accidents and we don’t want for our family members (employees) to be one of those statistics.

So, we hope you mark this on your calendar to attend our tool safety training meeting on 9/8/18. 

Should you have any questions about this meeting, please ask your Superintendent or contact our Safety Director, Peter Graham at (847) 417-1689 or at

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Have a Safe Day!
