During its Annual Meeting in Las Vegas, the Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance, Ottawa, Ontario, created a Glass Safety Council charged with developing guidelines on how to safely handle glass. The council was created by the board of directors during its board meeting.

"The council will report to both the technical services committee, and the certification/education committee," said Margaret Webb, IGMA executive director. "On the technical side, the council will look at the ASTM [glass safety] standard development, providing feedback and new ways to protect the employees. The education component will include activities similar to our recent Webinar."
