Reminder Notice - Next Volunteer Quarterly Safety Meeting on 9/8/18! (Tool Safety)

Good morning to all IDI employees,  

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 8th, 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 will have representatives from the various tool companies of the power tools we use at our volunteer quarterly safety meeting providing tool safety training.  There will be trainers from Hilti, Dewalt, Makita and JC Licht/Graco.

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, paint spray injection hazards, 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.

We look forward to seeing everyone 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

Have a Safe Day!
