Safety is Still #1. Even while Texas begins the process of opening up, it is crucial that we all continue to practice strict safety measures for the safety of our workers and the community at large.

Thank you to everyone who has worked to adjust to this new normal by instituting safety protocols specific to your job sites and by participating in Safety Stand Down meetings.

Many Members have reported that they are now holding regular safety meetings, in addition to employing safety measures such as social distancing, wearing masks and goggles, disinfecting tools shared among workers, and setting up hand sanitizing stations, to name just a few. Don't forget to keep an eye out not only for your job sites, but also for those you may pass during your day. If you see something out of compliance, reach out to the company to let them know.

Please do YOUR part to protect the health and welfare of OUR community.
