Are you aware of the new OSHA silica rule? Come take the New OSHA Silica required workers awareness class. Who needs to take the class? Workers exposed to respirable crystalline silica. OSHA requires a written plan, providing proper training to the workers, medical surveillance, record-keeping and certified HEPA tools. Heavy fines can be imposed if non-compliant with 29CFR1926.1153. Silica is comprised of quartz, found naturally in most rocks, sand, soil, brick and concrete products. Exposure occurs when the following methods are performed on silica building materials: abrasion or sandblasting, cutting or sawing, crushing or demolishing, drilling, grinding, and jackhammering.  It’s relevant to public works streets AND facility workers WHO do tile work, stucco, concrete repairs.

As in the past, we will have live music throughout the luncheon and President, Gerry Lopez will be holding the “Annual Awards Ceremony” to honor some well deserving individuals.  A very important part of our luncheon is the “Annual Canned Food and Toy Drive.”  We will be collecting canned food and toys ($15 value or less) that we will distribute to children and families in the Buena Park area.  Let us be very generous in our giving to bless those in need of a blessing during this time of year.

We do ask that vendors donate some great raffle prizes that we can give to our guests to make the time a bit more festive.

To help us in our planning, please submit your “Reservation Form” as soon as possible.  This year we ask that you prepay by credit/debit card to eliminate the long line at the registration table.  The “Credit Card Authorization” form is attached to the meeting flyer for your convenience.
