Posted: Mar 28, 2017

With the national safety stand-downs a month or so away the Chapter is offering up some tools you can use. These are provided by our members but you are free to use and edit. Some are serious, some are fun but all are useful.

Please use the links below and take advantage of the expertise of our members to make your planning easier. Please capture and send along any photos you may get during your national safety stand-downs and we would be happy to share those too! If you have something you would like to add to our stand down “library” please send along to Tlyons@gilbaneco.com. Just make sure they are editable and you have removed your firms logo etc. With your forwarding we will take that as permission to distribute and acknowledge you and your firm for their help.”
