Heat of the Season

Welcome to summer and safety.  As it should be in construction, safety is a priority at every jobsite.   June signifies the beginning of the summer construction rush and is also National Safety Month.  The industry is encouraged to increase focus on accident prevention by working to raise awareness around the leading causes of preventable injury.  Just as projects heat up at this time of year, so does the weather.  Make sure your people are familiar with summer specific safety practices as well, including proper hydration guidelines, heat stress prevention measures, and the use of personal protective equipment suitable for the hotter weather.  Check out more in “6 Ways to Beat the Heat This Summer.” There are some great reminders and perhaps you’ll even learn something new.
