Edgetech’s Mike Burk to lead IGMA’s Glass Safety Awareness Council

Post Time:Apr 26,2011Classify:Industry NewsView:64

Officials at the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance, Ottawa, ON,charged Mike Burk, manager, Workplace Learning and Performance, Edgetech I.G., Cambridge, Ohio, with overseeing the newly formed Glass Safety Awareness Council, according to an April 26 release. In his industry columns and Webinars, Burk regularly focuses on promoting workforce safety.

“In this business, or any business for that matter, it’s easy to get to a place of complacency when it comes to safety,” Burk said in the release. “When glass crashes to the ground, workers barely flinch. The Glass Safety Awareness Council will focus on bringing safety back to the forefront of our minds. This is a topic that’s always been near to me and I look forward to serving IGMA in this capacity.”

The Glass Safety Awareness Council was formed after the success of Burk’s recent Webinar “Fatalities and Injuries During Flat Glass Handling,” co-sponsored by IGMA and the Glass Association of North America, Topeka, Kan. Burk has nearly 20 years of experience in the fenestration industry with a strong background in training and development, including Green Belt and ISO training expertise. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Myers College in Cleveland, and has a master’s degree in adult learning and development from Cleveland State University.
