SOUTHERN ILLINOIS STONE - 1ST QUARTER Cold and wet conditions greeted Southern Illinois Stone during the 1st quarter of 2016. During this time, there was a brief shutdown of production, as we completed our winter maintenance projects. Upon completion, we began production to replenish our supply of products. We also took this time to construct a new training facility in the SIS maintenance shop. The new facility will provide the crew with a climate-controlled room to gather for safety meetings, employee training, and safety luncheons. The facility provides a centralized location for storage of safety PPE, along with an employee notification center. SIS took advantage of the first quarter to complete its annual MSHA refresher and Hazard Communication training. In addition, we did first-aid training and completed our hearing test, keeping with our hearing conservation plan. To meet the criteria for the IAAP safety award, the SIS team gathered the information and documents. We were pleased to accept the Rock Solid award for safety at the annual IAAP convention in Springfield, IL. SIS was also the recipient of the Community Relations award which was accepted by Jack Awards! Southern Illinois Stone did not have any lost time accidents or safety incidents during the 1st quarter of 2016. SIS went through a MSHA inspection during the quarter, in which the quarry received β€˜ZERO’ citations. The team at SIS continues to hold safety a number one priority. During this quarter, sales of material were good even though the weather was not. Materials were moved to our Mt. Vernon asphalt plant for their upcoming road projects. The City of Mt. Vernon will be taking bids on May 12th for the β€œ27th Street Reconstruction.” We were also busy suppling material to projects like reconstruction of 42nd Street in Mt. Vernon. This project has taken 9000 tons of construction aggregates.
