Before you get back working full time, let’s take care of your SILICA training

As we prepare to return to the field, let's make this time work for us. OSHA’s Crystalline Silica standards (1926.1153) requires workers be trained in the hazards of silica, medical requirements and best practices (1926.1153(i)(2)(i)) We have been offering this training live for sometime now. Before our “staycation”, we have represented two firms who found themselves on the wrong side of Silica citations. Not our preferred way to begin working with you. This dangerous hazard can be [...]

Having Fun Yet?

If you told me a month ago I would be able to take a month or two and relax very soon, I would have had you admitted to the insane asylum. This time we are all experiencing is to say the least – chaotic. Here’s some things I have found out about myself during this trying time: I was not meant to be at home very long (ask my wife) I am more of a workaholic than [...]

End of Year Happenings

Got a Minute? Ever put off something so long you finally say TODAY it will get done! I figured the day after Thanksgiving would be perfect. Get in here by 8 (yes I slept in!) and get this written.
