AFTERBURN REPORT 2007
The year 2007 was remarkable in that there were few issues that needed review and follow-up, the net result being a quiet year for this committee. The main focus was on on-going maintenance tasks, as well as reviewing and implementing recommendations from no less than three different voluntary compliance reviews from our insurance carriers. From each review there was a list of recommendations, such as practical reviews of safety rail guideline compliance as well administrative recommendations for documentation of safety meetings, forklift use, and updating of our MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) binders. Miscellaneous safety enhancements added this year included testing "close call" reporting for the DPW to improve specific hazard safety awareness.
For 2008 the focus will be to restructure the committee to revitalize it for the next stage in its organizational development as well as better meet the more global needs of the project.
