    In response to Eddie Harden's concern  posted on 9/24 about working at a steel plant, I have a few suggestions.  Check with the customer to see what Safety training they have and might require for their own employees.  Maybe Eddie's installers can participate.  In the NJ and NY area, large manufacturers often require contractors to participate in their safety training before contractors are allowed on the premises.  In some cases there are requirements that contractor's workers have OSHA 10 or OSHA 30 cards.  That means they have had 10 or 30 hours of OSHA approved safety training.  Check on the website to locate training resources and providers in your area.  Another website to check is  A best practice to consider adopting is for your techs to huddle each morning on the job site before starting work to talk about where they will be working, what they will be doing, what others will be doing in their vicinity, what hazards they may encounter and how to prepare.  A regular emphasis on safety is crucial to success.

    I have to stand by my statement of NOT ADOPTED NATIONALLY.  Widely adopted is not NATIONALLY.  On the time change I was not aware of changes, as a member of the committee he is in a better position than I to know changes as they happen.
