30th Annual Golf Tournament
Lake of Isles Golf Course at Foxwoods
July 16, 2020
Mid-Atlantic Division News
January and February were very busy with two multi-day training sessions taking place. We covered Core Rigging and Crane Signal Safety; Emerging Safety Supervisors and Competent Persons; GHS and Controlled Decking Zone; Equipment Training; OSHA 10; and First Aid/CPR, with many local members taking advantage of this training.
Regarding the training the chapter offers, member David Leinbach says, “As a business owner and a company that is concerned with Safety and Training; the training that MBCEA provides my Company pays for the membership fee 10 times over. There is no reason that anyone involved in the PEMB business should not be a member. Truly a membership that pays for itself.”
