Please join us in hosting a Safety Meeting or Tool Box Talk anytime during the week of March 19th – 23rd as we focus on Heat Illness Awareness. Even though it has not yet gotten dangerously hot , we know in the deep south that it’s just a matter of time.
Everyone on a construction site should know
how to prevent heat related illnesses!
Construction jobsites and other workplaces across America are
being asked to host a Safety Meeting/Tool Box Talk focusing on
heat illness prevention during the month of June, however in the South
the heat gets to us sooner, so we ask that these talks take place earlier.
Alabama AGC and CompTrust AGC are strong supporters of OSHA’s
campaign to educate field employees on the dangers of heat illness and
how to look for warning signs in fellow employees.
This time of year can be brutal on construction employees in Alabama.
Heat illnesses can be deadly, but they are preventable with the proper education and team work.
Take some time to educate your employees on the dangers of working outdoors and the
precautions which can save their lives.
OSHA has provided a training guide to assist you in which can be found on
OSHA or AlabamaAGC websites or by clicking on the links below.
