DeWalt Donates Tools For Safety Class Demonstrations

AGC Houston send a big THANK YOU to DeWalt Power Tools for donating their OSHA Drilling Solutions tools to the chapter. Juan De La Vega came by the AGC Houston office and set up two display stands that feature the OSHA dust compliant line of grinding and cutting tools that can be used for demonstration in OSHA safety classes. The displays include tools that manage dust extraction systems to cut down on silica dust created on the jobsite and to become compliant with the OSHA Silica Dust Ruling (1926.1153).

Kim Mason, AGC Houston Director of Safety  Services, asked De La Vega for old tools that could be donated and used for demonstration during the OSHA 10- and 30-hour classes. "I am blown away by the generosity of DeWalt - Juan brought and donated over $4,000 of power tools that will be used to train the proper way to handle them and to showcase the top of the line dust mitigation systems," stated Mason.
