Chicago Department of Water Management Safety Update

On July 25, 2006, at 8:00 a.m. approximately 30 Central District Department of Water Management employees had a Safety Meeting. The meeting was about Back Safety. The speaker was Mr. Daniel Yim, a Chiropractic Physician at Chicago Neck & Back Institute. Daniel was asked to speak by Mark Holder, a Safety Department Boss. The film and instruction was first class and a start to many needed meetings. I compliment the Central District Leadership on this safety meeting. I asked Mr. Yim about the treatment of back injuries. Mr Yim said, half of the back injuries that have back surgery end up worse the before”. I agree, many injuries are forced to surgery to “Make the numbers”. Next Derwin K. Thrower a Safety Engineer answered my question about MERCY WORKS, the question raised all sorts of questions about the care City of Chicago Workers receive from that Clout Institution that is sent millions from high ranking catholic politicians. We know. Derwin did not seem anymore impressed than we were. I will not repeat his words. Water Management time to review Mercy Works and listen to your workers. Patrick McDonough.
