Andrew Greess: Good morning. Thanks so much for joining us. Today, we're going to talk about safety. We see so many different pieces of equipment in our pest and  weed control equipment repair shop, and we started seeing a lot of safety issues. We started seeing lots of common themes.

We thought we'd make a presentation out of it and share these ideas so that you can improve the safety of your clients, your customers, your employees. We're going to share some of these ideas with you today. I've got some pictures that I think you'll find interesting.

What we're going to do, we're going to talk about, what are some of the risks of being in the pest control or landscaping business? I want to improve your awareness about some of these risks.

Some of them, I think, will be surprising to you. Then, we're also going to identify solutions, so that you can reduce the risk to yourself and to your company and to your employees.
