This column is the second of a two-part series addressing the issue of how to protect workers against heat stress. As discussed in last month's issue, heat stress may be one of the most overlooked safety issues facing restorers and remediators.
Over 30 authors – over 40 articles…from attorneys, contractors, consultants, instructors and others, both inside and outside the restoration industry. R & R, C & R and Cleanfax, opened their archives and gave us the best they had, other chapters were created just for the “Get Paid!” book and its readers. And every one of them has ideas for how to get paid what you are owed.
