It was "all things hard hats" and more at the Feb. 22 Safety Commitee Meeting. More than 60 AGC Houston members saw new types of hard hats on the market demonstrated by John Cashmore of Kask, Chris Lohman of Pyramex and Ryan Flaterman of MSA Safety. Following the meeting, Charlie Gertson of United Tool and Fastener demonstrated a dummy drop outside the building, wearing two different types of hard hats. 
The meeting also featured Dr. Masson of ROC Houston who spoke about managing orthopedic injuries in the field and Dan Gilbane, Gilbane Building Co., who gave his perspective on safety from a GC owner. In addition, OSHA's Jim Shelton reported on the Multi Employer Citation Policy and fielded questions.
