NEW: Utility gas meter change-out safety video
June 19, 2012 | Products
VISTA has formed a strategic partnership with the Consortium for Advanced Research in Gas Industries (CARGI) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to be the exclusive sales agent for its gas meter change-out safety video.
The "Protecting Yourself from Injuries: Gas Meter Change-out Guide" safety video was developed by CARGI specifically for gas utility employees and contractors. It describes the best ways to prevent injuries while performing residential and industrial/commercial gas meter installation, service and repair.
CARGI developed this safety training program as a result of a research project it conducted to identify the most common types of injuries that can occur during gas meter change-outs - including back, neck and knee pain. The video outlines safe work practices to help workers avoid such injuries.
What's especially unique about this video is that the safe work practices CARGI recommends are based on extensive field data collected and analyzed by its staff. That brings some valuable real-world credibility to its recommendations.
CARGI is dedicated to improving ergonomics, safety, productivity and quality in the gas and related utility industries. The consortium is made up of member companies in the Midwest and eastern U.S., representing gas and electric utilities, ancillary organizations, suppliers and consultants. CARGI is headquartered near the UW-Milwaukee campus, where it has an extensive research laboratory for studying musculoskeletal injuries. It also conducts extensive in-field research to identify and address potential job-site safety hazards, using a combination of its staff and UW graduate students.
