As the weather becomes “frightful” during winter months, construction workers who must brave the outdoor conditions face the occupational hazard of exposure to the cold. You need to be especially mindful of the weather, its effects on the body, and proper prevention techniques.
Every Front Line Supervisor is responsible for timely reporting of all work-related injuries, accidents and fall exposures. To properly carry out his duties, today we are reviewing with all employees, the responsibilities of supervisors and employees to report accidents.
Actually, we have no control over rain, snow, sleet, wind, lightning or sunshine. But we can control what happens on our job as a result of the elements. Some of the biggest problems on construction jobs are caused by wind and lightning. Wind probably causes the most accidents; lightning can be deadly.
Our stretching program helps our employees increase their overall flexibility and range-of motion for better and safer performance.

A strong commitment to the safety and integrity of the general public, our own employees and our associated subcontractors is the supreme responsibility of all levels of our organization.
We will have an OSHA training class for employees who have not attended this training on Tuesday January 24th and Wednesday Janaury 25th.
This is a mandatory training class; any employee that does not attend will not be allowed to return to work unti he/she attends this training class.
UT Southwestern had a contest for the employees to come up with a new safety slogan. 61 employees from the project's construction trades entered the contest. With 4 categories, and 1 judge from each trade to determine the winners, and the winners would receive a girt card.
