OSM Recap

Pumpers ruled the Rockies September 17-18 when more than 150 individuals from 75 companies gathered in Colorado for the ACPA’s second-annual Operations, Safety & Maintenance (OSM) Conference. The event took place at the Westin Westminster hotel, nestled conveniently between the cities of Denver and Boulder. With the Rocky Mountains serving as a backdrop, attendees spent the weekend learning, networking and having some fun to boot.

Stay Ahead of Cold-related Incidents

As we approach winter, you will need to prepare your employees physically and mentally for inclement weather. They may face a variety of cold-weather hazards, including frostbite, hypothermia, trench foot and hazardous road conditions. All of these conditions are extremely serious, and employers must take measures to prevent them from occurring.

Sadly, there was a recent fatality involving an operator who attempted to remove a blockage using compressed air. PLEASE forward this email to all your operators as a reminder to NEVER use compressed air when attempting to remove a blockage.

William A. (Bill) Cross

Sadly, our industry lost one its true pioneers with the passing of Bill Cross of Cross Enterprises. Cross Concrete Pumping was one of the founding members of the ACPA with Bill serving on the ACPA Board of Directors and as President on the ACPA Executive Board. In 1994, Bill and his brother, Charles, each received ACPA Pioneer Awards. On a personal note, I will always remember Bill for his kind words of encouragement when I became the ACPA Executive Director many years ago.
