April 26, 2011 – The Insulating Glass Manufacturers Alliance recently
announced that Mike Burk, manager of workplace learning and performance
for Edgetech I.G., is charged with overseeing the newly
formed Glass Safety Awareness Council. In his industry columns and
webinars, Burk regularly focuses on promoting workforce safety.

“In this business, or any business for that matter, it’s easy to get to a
place of complacency when it comes to safety,” Burk said. “When glass
crashes to the ground, workers barely flinch. The Glass Safety Awareness
Council will focus on bringing safety back to the forefront of our
minds. This is a topic that’s always been near to me and I look forward
to serving IGMA in this capacity.”

The Glass Safety Awareness Council was formed after the success of
Burk’s recent webinar, Fatalities and Injuries During Flat Glass
Handling, which was co-sponsored by IGMA and the Glass Association of North
America (GANA). Burk has nearly 20 years of experience in the
fenestration industry with a strong background in training and
development, including Green Belt and ISO training expertise. He holds a
bachelor’s degree in business from Myers College in Cleveland, Ohio,
and has a master’s degree in adult learning and development from
Cleveland State University.
