Durante Rentals and its earth-moving division, New York – New Jersey Takeuchi, are sponsoring this year’s Hudson Valley Region Excavator Safety Seminar. The free event, hosted by Dig Safely New York, is taking place on Wednesday, March 14th, from 7:00 am to 2:15 pm, at the Rockland Community College Fieldhouse in Suffern, N.Y.

  Along with sponsoring the event, Durante Rentals and NY-NJ Takeuchi will have their Takeuchi min-excavators on full display at the show entrance where attendees are encouraged to take an up-close look at these machines. You can stop by their booth for machine catalogs, promo items, and giveaways. Industry veteran and V.P. of Takeuchi Sales at Durante, Chris Hamblet, will be on hand to answer questions.

“This will be our second year at the show and if you own or operate excavators, you need to be here”, said Chris Hamblet. “The safety lessons you’ll take away from this event are invaluable, helping prevent injuries and save lives,” said Chris.

      This is Dig Safely New York’s 12th consecutive year hosting NY State’s Premier Underground Damage Prevention Safety Training Series. Last year’s seminar series drew more than 3,300 attendees, including municipalities, utility personnel, safety professionals, and other excavator operators. The Excavator Safety Seminars offer free training sessions that qualify as a certified excavator renewal event. This year’s agenda includes a keynote by Brandon Schroeder, a catered lunch, a Who Wants to be an Excavator audience participation game, and a vendor-wide raffle at the conclusion of the show with prizes, including a pair of Mets tickets donated by Durante Rentals and NY-NJ Takeuchi.
