Nevada Builders Blueprint November 2020
From the CEO
I was hoping to give you a comprehensive rundown of the 2020 Election, maybe next month at this pace. Thank you to the record breaking number of you who turned out to vote, in whatever fashion you felt comfortable. The final votes are still being tallied and it is a mixed bag of sighs of relief, pleasant surprises and maddening finishes for sure. Congratulations to those candidates that have clear leads and good luck to the rest...

Working in Hazardous Weather Conditions
As construction work continues into the winter season, we begin to see the weather shift to colder temperatures and more hazardous conditions for our workers. Make sure to start those conversations with your team on how to manage the risks of working outdoors and traveling on roads that have become much more dangerous.
Talk to your team about working outside in the cold. In these conditions, workers should dress properly to stay warm throughout their shift. They should also be trained in self-monitoring and the monitoring of other coworkers for symptoms of cold stress. If a worker is suffering from cold stress, workers should be trained in cold stress related first aid and how to call for additional medical assistance.
Common Types of Cold Stress include Hyperthermia, Frostbite and Trench Foot or Immersion Foot. If exposure to cold, wet and windy conditions is not managed, these conditions can lead to hospitalization, amputation or even death.
On the roads, make sure to get vehicles ready for winter road conditions. Slippery and Icy Roads will now be a concern, and workers will have to plan for more hazardous situations. Be prepared to survive in your vehicle if necessary when facing extreme conditions and always have a way to call for help.
Working and traveling in hazardous weather conditions can be very dangerous. We want to help see you through the danger. For more information on Working in Hazardous Weather Conditions, or other construction safety questions or concerns, please contact PGM Safety Services, an affiliate company of Pro Group Management. We will be happy to assist when you visit us at www.pgmnv.com or call (800) 859-3177.
