SMACNA KC is sad to say goodbye to Steve Ratliff,
our Safety Manager, for the past 8 years.  
In our partnership with Holmes Murphy, we have enjoyed working with Steve. We greatly appreciate all that he has done for our contractors, our Association, our union partners with SMART Local #2, and our industry as a whole.  
Steve has actively participated in many different committees, task forces, and groups to help enhance health and safety in construction.  

He will be missed.  Please, help us wish Steve a long and Happy Retirement!
