Heat Illness Awareness Week – April 24-28, 2017

Join us in hosting a Safety Meeting/Tool Box Talk anytime during the week of April 24-28, 2017  Focusing on  Heat Illness Awareness.

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.

In an effort to give OSHA an idea of how many employees participate in this National Event,
we are asking that each company register by filling out the
Registration attached to this link 2017 Heat Illness Safety Stand Down Flyer
and sending it back to AGC:  staff@agcmobile.org

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.
