Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts declared June 17-21 as Trench Safety Stand Down Week and issued a proclamation. NUCA of Nebraska members participated in toolbox talks and training sessions during the week. During NUCA of Nebraska’s annual Golf Tournament on June 20, members also took time to celebrate TSSD Week.
