Mike Starner's Monthly Message to District 10
Recently, I participated in a volunteer project that presented various logistical and technical challenges for the group. We were tasked with helping contractors install a solar array and associated equipment. The worksite was in a remote location, staffed by volunteers, and all materials and tools would be sourced on-site. Having worked in construction my whole life, I felt like I was prepared for anything that may pop up during the project and as a safety professional, I felt I was well equipped to anticipate, identify, and resolve any problems we might encounter.
