1. Safety Policy Templates

First three webinars have been scheduled for August 17 (Lockout Tagout), August 24 (Confined Space) and August 31 (Trenching and Shoring). Brian and Eric have been doing a great job preparing the presentations. We will be sharing our policy templates during the presentations. Editable PDFs have been created and posted to our file site. Safety committee is encouraged to attend the webinars.


2. Committee Goals-
Nora attended the Strategic Planning Retreat. The emphasis on total water (source water, stormwater, wastewater collection) will need to be addressed within our committee goals. We discussed that a lot of our topics really do cover total water- ie Trenching and Shoring safety is appropriate for all. Carolyn asked the committee to consider this direction for our next month’s discussion where we develop our strategic planning goals for next year.


3. IEMA Training – Radium/Radon in Water and Wastewater Plants- Gary Forsee with IEMA has prepared some training materials on the impact of radon on worker safety in water and wastewater treatment plants treating for systems with radium in the groundwater. Carolyn suggested this committee team with Gary to help him review the documents and help him present to our section members. Nora and Brian both thought this sounded like a good idea. Carolyn to follow up with Gary and invite him to our next conference call.


4. Committee Liaison Updates

Education – Angela looking for safety speakers and topics if we know of any (other than our esteemed committee members already presenting our safety templates of course!)
