    Part of the game. I received a call today to give an estimate to a location that was for sale and the real estate agent had no clue of why I was there when I called her. :nono:

    Unless part of your scope of work includes heavy construction, lumber milling or any other specified trade or industry, this is a scam. Hopefully you are also not handling a list of 100 or so industrial reagents that are normally not seen outside of chemical manufacturing. I had to look at that part to see if any common lawn chemicals were on that list.

    Hey Peek, in case it is not, just write your own safety manual. Do it in Word and make it into a PDF. That should satisfy
