Staying Safe in a Hazardous Industry


Tuesday, September 9, 2014
10:00am - 12:00pm


Injuries and fatalities are on the rise in the Houston area. How can we work within our own companies and organizations, as well as together as an industry, to create a culture of safety?  Margaret Spencer, Regional Outreach Coordinator with TCIA, will review TCIA’s recently released "Five-Year Analysis of Tree Care Accidents," and James Shelton with OSHA will give a presentation including recent accident summaries for the Houston area. There will be a Q&A session and an open forum to discuss ideas and issues that are of greatest concern. View the PDF flyer here.
