         individuals to become an NCCCO Cer-
         tified  Practical  Examiner  for  Founda-
         tion Drill Rigs. Something that Terex
         Utilities should be proud of! Dale’s par-
         ticipation helped provide the industry
         with quality assessments that are spe-
         cifically focused on the work that foun-
         dation drill rig operators perform on a
         daily basis. These assessments will en-
         sure that operators are proficient and
         knowledgeable and thereby reduce risk
         and improve safety in the drilled foun-
         dation industry,” said Marshall.
