The ASA Safety Committee, led by Safety Chair,
Ted Dunnam of ESC Safety Consultants
, partnered with
Byrne Construction Services
to conduct a safety stand-down at their local projects on Tuesday, May 8, 2018.
A demonstration was performed at each project by
Mike Grendell of Midco Sling
Ryan Anguiano of 3M
to emphasize the arresting forces on a body during a fall. Additionally,
Alex Porter, OSHA Area Director
Victor Ramon, Compliance Assistant Specialist for OSHA
, addressed the employees with statistics about the effects of fatalities & injuries on workers, companies, and victim’s families. Through the efforts of all involved we were able to reach over 200 workers and raise the level of safety awareness in their environment.
Special thanks to the general contractors and subcontractors involved for your dedication to safety.
