We are still here, we promise! We have a lot going on and our board is hard at work to make things happen you asked for.
We are in the beginning stages of planning a Safety and Health Expo for September 2015. Look for more details to follow. In the meantime, please don’t forget about our food drive contest we are holding. Last month we collected 110 pounds of food for Food Finders Food Bank. We are really close to our 200 pound goal. Whichever company brings the most weight in donations receives a gift card!
We are really looking forward to our upcoming meeting. It is August 13, 2014 at Ivy Tech Corporate Learning Center. Lunch is provided by Ritz Safety and Mike Murphy from Honeywell is going to give a presentation on Fall Protection. Lunch starts at 11:30 and the meeting starts at 12pm. We hope to see you there!

This is an excellent post from our friends at the Art of Manliness. While GLASC is, mostly, about industrial and workplace safety we need to remember that safety does begin at home. This time of year is a great opportunity to reinforce your home safety systems and change out those fire alarm batteries. Read this article to enjoy and learn more…
Have wonderful holiday events,

When you browse these poster you will see the same issue we face today. Welding safety, arch flash–it’s all there. The interesting thing about this collection of posters is that they are all from the Netherlands. They also are heavily influenced by the German Expressionist movement popular at the time. They are pretty scary to look at, but I thought it was right for this spooky time of year. MB
Today, Holly DeRose and Tobi Yeatman told us about the value of employee engagement when it comes to promoting safety in the workplace. Great advice and ideas about bring the message of safety home to employees.
Holly and Tobi work for CNH Parts and Services. http://www.cnhindustrial.com/Pages/splash_cnhindustrial.html
