How is Your Season Shaping Up? 

As we turn to fall, work can become more unpredictable. Hurricane season is in full swing, as we see from the devastation Hurricane Fiona has caused, so make sure you are ready to keep yourself and your job site safe, as well as handle the aftermath. OSHA has an excellent site on Hurricane Preparedness and Response to help you handle storms that might come your way.

You may have noticed we’ve added an exciting new feature to our Safety Management Portal. Now photos taken by our inspectors help illustrate any recommendations or failing items on our inspections, making reports even more comprehensive. These new reports will make it easier for you to get items abated quickly. To view them, log into the Portal, click on Inspections, then Inspection Reports. Don’t have your inspections done by CATS yet? Don’t miss out! Contact us today. 

In October, Jack will attend the New England ISA Annual Conference and Trade Show and the Mass Cemetery Supplier Field Day. Later on, Kizzy will join Jack at the Equip Exposition in Louisville, KY. If you’re attending any of these shows, and you’re curious about all that we have to offer, there’s no better time to ask questions!

Enjoy the cooling temps!
