ATD attended the Construction Industry Dinner, supporting the Boy Scouts of America. The Construction Industry Dinner provides a unique networking opportunity for members of Chicago’s construction industry to come together in support of the Scouting community serviced by the Pathway to Adventure Council, Boy Scouts of America. This event is the largest gathering of the industry in Chicago. It draws over 1,200 construction leaders from around the country. The funding resulting from this event makes it one of the largest contributors to benefit the youth and volunteers that make Scouting in the Pathway to Adventure Council the quality program that it is.

Very excited to say that ATD’s first ever Spring Fling was a HUGE success! We had a great turn out and a fun time was had by all! The room was buzzing with excitement and morale. Mike LeGood made a very nice speech and recognized our two retirees – Dean Weis and Tom Haingl. Matt Jachimiak DJ’d the event and did a fabulous job!

Thanks to Don, Dave and all who were able to attend!


Q1 Stand Up For Safety

March 23, 2018 | By: Jessica Helmer

The week of 3/19/18-3/23/18 has been designated as ATD’s Q1 2018 “ATD Stands Up For Safety” week. Four times a year, ATD superintendents and foremen along with the safety department conduct a series of special safety training sessions out on our jobsites on relevant safety and health topics. These special meetings are designed to be more comprehensive and interactive than just a tool box talk. Crew members participate in the meetings, and each ATD employee who attends is given a small token of our appreciation for their ongoing commitment to safety.

In conjunction with National Ladder Safety Month, the topic for Q1 2018’s meetings is “Ladder Safety” and the end of the week we conducted 29 meetings for 125 employees.


Final Fit Testing

March 12, 2018 | By: Jessica Helmer

Saturday, March 3rd was our final session of the scheduled annual fit testing that was held in the Hastings Learning Center. ATD’s safety team trained and properly educated our field employees on all important respiratory needs. All field employees wore their proper masks and hard hats for the formal training. A big thanks to our SAFETY TEAM for spending the last 3 Saturday mornings completing this OSHA requirement. Thanks also to all of the Superintendents who attended and assisted in these sessions. This was a complete TEAM effort by everyone.
