As most of you know, the Chicago and suburban area is expecting extremely high winds today with wind gusts expected up to 60 MPH. If you are at a job site that has outdoor work, you need to be monitoring the wind conditions for all aerial lift work, outdoor scaffolding, roof work, etc. Our employees cannot be operating outdoor scissor lifts, boom lifts, working on outdoor scaffolding if the wind conditions at your job site are causing concern. If in doubt, stop those operations and consult with your Superintendent. Also, we need to ensure we are securing our outdoor equipment and materials from displacement due to the high winds.
If you have any questions about this, please call your Superintendent or our Safety Director, Safety Pete.
Lastly, as you know, if you are an employee of IDI, you are considered family. We want to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones! We hope that everyone has a nice relaxing day, enjoy watching Da Bears, spending time with those that matter and giving thanks for everything we have!
