Come join us at our next chapter meeting on Monday, October 15 at the private dining room at Southwest Research Institute Cafeteria. Our guest speaker will be Jennifer Choi from Cestusline headquartered in Portland, OR. Jennifer will overview work gloves and recent innovations to customize task specific gloves for defined industries and hazards.
Named after the ancient Roman battle glove adorned by gladiators in combat, Cestus was created in 2010 after decades of hearing from glove users and seeing firsthand the design flaws of other gloves. Since the company formation, Cestus has provided top-quality hand protection for a variety of industries, thanks to over 30 years of experience in gloves and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). After re-defining impact hand protection in the oil and gas industry, Cestus has been making waves in multiple other job fields including mining, welding, extrication, general utility, and more.

President’s Message – September 2018
Sep 07, 2018
Greetings Fellow Safety Professionals:
I hope you all had a wonderful summer. As we all returned from the Labor day weekend, we were greeted by much needed rain which flooded many low water crossing across south Texas. The theme of our next monthly meeting on September 17 will be Turn Around, Don’t Drown (TADD). We will meet in the private dining room at Southwest Research Institute Cafeteria at 11 AM. Our guest speaker will be singer and song writer Matt Hawk. The National Weather Service just released a new TADD Public Service Announcement and jingle. The PSA and 3 versions of the jingle can be found on the NWS website here. Matt will share the podium with Battalion Chief Will Pritchett, San Antonio Fire Department Technical Rescue Team. Chief Pritchett and his team will speak on the high hazard nature of swift water rescue.
Turn Around, Don’t Drown,
