In the event an employee is involved in an accident or sustains an injury while on the job, they must report it to their supervisor immediately regardless of its severity. First aid supplies are normally maintained at jobsites to take care of certain minor injuries. When medical attention is warranted, the supervisor will assist the employee in getting to proper medical facilities.
Hot weather causes more fatalities than any other weather-related source. Heat waves rarely are given adequate attention but in fact, they claim more lives each year than floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes combined. Heat waves are a silent killer. Heatstroke also affects both genders equally. However, because many men were exposed to heat in the workforce, the annual death rate is 2 times higher in men than in women.
On June 22, 2018, at the MAREK Dallas/Coppell branch, we launched a new program for an introduction of our services to the Architecture, Designer and General Contractor market.
We partnered with Knoll Textiles, offering a ‘Hands-On Workshop’. Stantec Architects, a growing firm in Dallas, displayed interest in learning more about us, hence the ‘workshop' idea.

WHY TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER?
We have no control over rain, snow, sleet, wind, lightning or sunshine, but we can control what happens on our job as a result of the elements. Some of the biggest problems on construction jobs are caused by wind and lightning. Wind probably causes the most accidents; lightning can be deadly.
WATCH OUT FOR WIND
