TEAM SAFETY MEETING | SEPTEMBER 2020
This month’s Team Safety Meeting focused on Fall Protection…
It is national Stand Down for Safety week and East Harding, as always, puts SAFETY as our #1 priority.
In our meeting, experts on safety such as Keith Broadway, Health & Safety Director & Nathan Kerr, Field Operations Manager offered compelling facts and protocols to keep our team, our subs and our clients safe as well as the general public.
Fall Protection not only safeguards against direct falls but also extends to falling equipment and material. That is why it is so important to be adamant about safety every day on every job site.
East Harding has an eight year record of no time lost due to jobsite accidents!
Way to go Team!

Fourth of July Fireworks
The first fireworks were used as early as 200 BC. The tradition of setting off fireworks on the 4 of July began in Philadelphia on July 4, 1777, during the first organized celebration of Independence Day. Ship’s cannon fired a 13-gun salute in honor of the 13 colonies. The Pennsylvania Evening Post reported: “at night there was a grand exhibition of fireworks (which began and concluded with thirteen rockets) on the Commons, and the city was beautifully illuminated.” That same night, the Sons of Liberty set off fireworks over Boston Common.
