I hope everyone has had a safe, wonderful summer and is as ready and excited as we are for this year’s American Foundry Society Program and events.

I know everyone has been spending their time worrying about our wonderful government and the OSHA Silica rule they are forcing on our industry. So we have a speaker that has been working toward compliance as well as working in Washington to try and change some minds. 

Our speaker this month is Jessica Ulmer-West. The topic we, light heartedly, titled “Is it safe to walk the beach?” Within this title, Jessica will discuss our situation and how things are being defined so we might better understand what must be done to comply.

Jessica is currently sits on the board of the Central Ohio Chapter and is employed at Kenton Iron as the Environmental, Safety & HR Manager. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University with a B.S. in English Literature and seeking a MBA from the University of Findlay. Jessica has made several trips to Washington DC to meet with our representatives and explain our situation and concerns.

Please feel free to bring your questions and your experiences for some discussion.
