From Safety Department
Today, we want to showcase our COMANCO Superintendent, Jorge Gomez Ruiz, Gerardo Ruiz, and Foreman, Pablo Medina. They were observed committing a SAFETY ACT this month!
While completing a landfill project in Southwest Florida, both gentlemen completed an outstanding safety act and took it upon themselves to provide shaded cover for their crew. They furnished a canopy where team members could enjoy micro-breaks from the blistering Florida sun. In addition, they supplied fully stocked coolers with water and sports drinks to keep the team fully hydrated.
The Importance of Safety Acts in Florida’s Hot Temperatures
Extended exposure to the sun and extreme temperatures can bring about a wide variety of heat-related illnesses and several safety concerns. Outdoor exposure to heat on a job site can be responsible for accidents through sweaty and slippery palms, dizziness, fatigue, decreased alertness, and the fogging of safety glasses or goggles. Furthermore, the physical discomfort caused by prolonged exposure to sunlight can increase irritability, anger, and other emotional states that sometimes cause workers to overlook safety procedures or may divert attention from hazardous tasks. And in some cases, mental capacity may also be affected.
At COMANCO, we are committed to keeping our employees safe.
The safety acts of keeping your crew cool and well-hydrated are some of the best ways to protect them when working in hot environments. COMANCO commends you for a job well done!
Ways to keep your employees safe:
- Provide breaks in shaded areas
- Make sure water is in reach and employees stay hydrated throughout the day
- Have gear and supplies that will protect them from the sun
- Keep employees in check with safety protocols
