No steel toed boots, but they want closed toes anyway. We could probably wear sneakers and they wouldn't say anything, but we're wearing boots. Safety meeting was a 5 minute joke. They should have just had their 5-6 items listed on a sheet of paper and had me sign it acknowledging that I read it. No climbing in enclosed spaces (meter pits) before they test it.
It's a weird deal really. We're hired by city utilities water conservation department to fix the city parks. Two different entities. So utilities is kind of a middle man to get the work done. Nice people, good efforts to get something done.
