November Meeting Announcement

The next SAFER meeting is this Wednesday, November 5, 2014 from 8 to 10am at NEIT.


Personal Protection Equipment Utilization: “The Good, The Bad, The Ugly.”

We have all seen the outrageous images of a worker with a square of foam in lieu of a hard hat, with a sheet of newsprint used in lieu of an appropriately shaded face shield, or inverted bucket in lieu of motorcycle helmet.  In a moment, without much consideration, the use of these materials can be determined to be inappropriate.

Why then, in a market were appropriate PPE (and instructions for use) are readily available do we find misapplication (and even non-use).

The group will exam ways to improve PPE utilization through an interactive discussion.  OSHA has provided useful resource information – see OSHA PPE SLTC, which includes among other resources: eLCOSH PPE Training Guide.

LESSONS LEARNED: Jason Berard of ORCPG we share a lessons learned with the group.

SPONSOR: Old Republic Construction Program Group (ORCPG)
