This week we continue to focus on the construction industry and show appreciation for all that our team does. It is easy to forget how construction affects our daily lives. From the buildings we live and work in to the roads we use for transportation, construction workers make our lifestyle possible. It is important to encourage those in the industry and help educate others on the opportunities available within construction.

Labor Day means a three-day holiday weekend for a lot of us. It also means more people potentially traveling for the holiday and enjoying time with friends and family. As with many holidays, more people may be on the road this weekend. Additionally, this may be the last weekend of summer fun like swimming and grilling. Those elements can also present hazards. Stay safe and alert!

As a construction company, it is easy to think of safety in regards to job site and heavy equipment hazards. While office workers may be at a lower risk for injuries, it is important to remember safety in and around the office. What may seem line small items can become larger challenges if not addressed. According to Safety and Health Magazine, over 80,000 office and administrative workers were injured on-the-job in 2008. Some of these injuries could have been prevented if precautions were taken and individuals recognized risks around the office.

If you work in construction, it can be easy to take for granted going in and out of a job site. If you get used to showing up to work at a particular project it is easy to slip into autopilot. However, it is important to stay alert and aware of hazards that can be present.

It is a time of year that many of us in Southeast Texas do not want to think about, hurricane season. After the 2017 season and Hurricane Harvey, we do not want another storm. However, we cannot change what nature does and it is important to be prepared. Take the time to prepare each year and think about what could happen if a storm effects our area.

Trips and falls are probably not at the top of your mind as far as safety concerns go. However, they represent a major area of safety that is partly preventable. It may not always be possible to see a hazard or anticipate a where slipping can occur but we can take steps to prevent them.

National Safety Month continues with a focus on health and wellness this week. Thinking about our health is often moved to the bottom of our priority list. Instead of looking at our overall wellness as an optional task, if we have time, we should see it as a necessity each day. When we focus on our health and wellbeing, we are able to perform at our highest level for our employers, employees, family, and friends.

Proper planning and execution of roads, water supplies, bridges, and other structures make traveling to our jobs, homes, vacation, and other activities possible. Without it, daily activities would be extremely difficult and in some cases impossible.

Warmer weather has come around in Southeast Texas along with some wind and rain this week. As the temperatures warm, it is important to stay diligent on the road as driving conditions change. In looking back at Hurricane Harvey and the freezing temperatures we had in January, both of these events could affect the roads and cause unusual wear and tear. With floodwaters and freezing temperatures, we can expect to see more road construction than usual, as repairs could be needed.

Driving in the dark, along with fatigue from long work hours, and other distractions can make driving at night more dangerous.

As April comes to an end, we come to the close of Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Technological advances have been a wonderful opportunity for improvements and added convenience to our daily lives. However, those added conveniences such as texting, calling someone on a mobile device, checking email on the go, etc. can lead to hazards while driving.

Many workers in the U.S.A. are in the office most of the day and it is easy to make the mistake thinking there are no safety concerns in an office. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries or pain in the musculoskeletal system and can include the joints, ligaments, muscles, nerves and other structures in the human body.

With more people being around the house and traveling, let’s make sure we all have a fun and safe holiday weekend.

December is here and the holiday rush has started. There are a lot of events, holiday parties, and shopping trips to make during the next thirty days and that means more vehicles in the road at the same time. At the same time, it is important to remember what is important in life and take extra care when driving in traffic.

The holiday season reminds us to stop and appreciate the people in our lives and the blessings we have. Many families and friends will be gathering tomorrow, and through the weekend, to enjoy good food and time together. While you are taking a break from work please do not take a break from safety awareness. It is easy to forget about safety when we are celebrating and not worried about seemingly safe tasks that we have done before.

It is at least the second day this week that we have woken up to heavy fog in Southeast Texas. Since fog can reduce visibility, it is important to take extra precaution when driving in dense fog. And in the early morning hours, drivers are commuting to work and may be more groggy than normal with slower response times.

Many people have been coming down with colds and/or allergies this week and it serves as a reminder that we have entered into flu season. If you work around a lot of people on a regular basis, it makes it easier to contract the flu or some other virus. There are some simple things one can do to try and prevent getting sick and they are healthy habits anyway.
