Workforce Development Update
 
We made huge strides in our workforce development efforts in 2016 and the new year will bring even more progress as we move forward with new initiatives, programs and partnerships. And with the establishment of the Construction Industry Sector Council and Aaron's recent appointment to the Governors Workforce Development Board, we are beginning to make inroads at the State level.

Cold Weather



Working in Cold Weather

Providing a safe and healthy workplace in construction can be a challenge when you have no control over the weather and the job must go on.  Construction workers already face an environment that is likely to get them hurt without the proper planning, training and good daily decision making.  When you add cold weather conditions, they must make additional considerations to protect themselves. Remember, workers face increased risks when they take certain medications, are in poor physical condition or suffer from illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension or cardiovascular disease.
