We would like to Welcome the 6 new members who were scorn in at our monthly meeting. We hope to see you at upcoming meetings.
Safety Message from Fran Capozzi - Gas Safety Advocate:Now that Spring has finally arrived, or so we hope, it may be time to consider getting new work boots. Twenty percent of our injuries are attributed to slips, trips and falls. Soles wear out, laces frayed, and I'm sure the salt, cold and water has taken its toll on your footwear.
Even though the snow isn't going to be a factor, there will still be distracted drivers, school buses, motorcycles, people on cell phones (even walking) along with children walking or playing around our work zones. We will always need to be careful with out trucks and equipment; especially during the construction season.
Most important to note -- We are "ALL" in a very dangerous and unforgiving job. If we do nothing else, we need to watch out for each other, every day! -
Jim Card, IBEW Local 97, Assistant Business Manager Central
