OSHA encourages America's workplaces to commit to workplace safety and health by participating in Safe + Sound Week, August 10-16. This nationwide event recognizes the successes of workplace safety and health programs and offers information and ideas on how to keep America’s workers safe.
Continuing its 75-year effort to bring utility services to rural Americans, the Power & Communication Contractors Association (PCCA) proudly joined the American Connection Project Broadband Coalition in July. Coalition members are working together to bring high-speed internet access to all households, with a focus on those in rural areas.
Representing nearly 50 companies and business organizations from a cross-section of the U.S. economy, the coalition launched on July 8. It is spearheaded by farmer-owned cooperative Land O’Lakes, Inc., which like PCCA advocates for full internet accessibility, including for all rural Americans.

"This is sad news indeed. There are few people in this world as genuinely friendly as Ron Rowe," PCCA President & CEO Tim Wagner said. "Lisa and I always enjoyed spending time with Ron and Judy at PCCA meetings. And though he was a quiet man, Ron would speak up during board meetings when a point needed to be made, and when he did, people listened. He will be dearly missed. Our prayers go out to Judy and the rest of Ron's family, friends, and all the people at KG Myers."
