CAB Introduces New Heavy Duty S-Hooks


CAB S-Hooks are a quick and easy solution to meeting OSHA housekeeping requirements. They hook to almost any support and stand up to constant use indoors or outside in extreme weather, in temporary or permanent applications. CAB S-Hooks are manufactured from high tensile spring steel, and they are far stronger and more durable than competitve products. CAB S-Hooks are completely insulated with a heavy PVC plastisol coating which makes them non-conductive, corrosion resistant, flame retardant, smooth and very easy to handle.    -August 22, 2016, Updated March 24, 2017, January 2019 Click here to download and print CAB S-Hook info.

My CHOICE, My Work, My Life


The Cambria County Association for the Blind and Handicapped thanks our employees and families, staff and local legislators for coming together to convey the message of CHOICE, that is a person with a disability has the right to choose where to work.  We recently made several trips to Harrisburg and Washington DC to express our concerns on the impact of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) as regards employment of persons with disabilities. WIOA was a very complicated piece of legislation, but thankfully we were able to make our views known, and our legislators listened.   A special THANK YOU to PA Senator Wayne Langerholc for touring our facility, meeting with parents and working with fellow legislators to explain, educate and rally for all Pennsylvania citizens with disabilities.  Your dedication and commitment to serve persons [...]
