The Stand-down began with a moment of silence to remember those lost or impacted by the explosion in Allentown. Employees then received safety-related presentations. Field employees also took the opportunity to conduct a check of personal safety equipment – such as high-visibility vests, hardhats, and safety and detection equipment, among other items – required while working at a job site.
