LOOK UP! What do you see? Hopefully its a clear blue sky.

The ongoing efforts in our construction industry to maintain good air quality in our project areas is working. We have received positive feedback indicating that our collective initiatives are making a difference. However, there is a critical aspect that requires our immediate attention.

It has come to our notice that the speed of construction vehicles has become a significant factor contributing to safety and air quality concerns. Reports suggest that the speed at which these vehicles operate is causing undue pollution, prompting law enforcement to take action and enforce speed limits more rigorously.

To ensure our continued success in promoting a healthy environment and compliance with local regulations, we urgently request your cooperation in addressing this matter. Kindly instruct your construction teams and vehicle operators to adhere strictly to speed limits and exercise caution in construction zones. This not only aligns with the principles of responsible construction but also helps maintain a positive image of our industry in the eyes of both the public and authorities.

We understand the pressure to meet deadlines and keep construction projects on track, but it is imperative that we balance this with our commitment to environmental stewardship. By slowing down construction traffic, we not only mitigate air quality issues but also contribute to the safety of our workers and the communities in which we operate.

Please disseminate this information among your teams, emphasizing the importance of adhering to speed limits and fostering a culture of responsible construction practices. We are confident that, with your cooperation, we can make a significant impact on improving air quality, improved safety and ensure the sustained success of your projects.

This message is brought to you by the Southern Utah Air Quality Task Force.

Do your on-the-job safety expectations carry over to your home and family?

Consider a Safety Incentive Program aimed at recognizing and rewarding the dedication of your workers to maintaining a secure work environment.

This initiative could extend beyond the job site and encourage safety-conscious behavior in all aspects of life, including the home environment. AGC believes that fostering a safety mindset at work and at home contributes to a holistic approach to overall well-being.

Here are key components of a possible program you could incorporate in your safety culture:

afety Performance Recognition: Employees demonstrating exceptional safety practices on the job will be acknowledged regularly. This includes adherence to protocols, proper use of personal protective equipment, and vigilant hazard reporting.

Incentives and Rewards: Workers with outstanding safety records will have the opportunity to earn incentives and rewards. These could range from gift cards and merchandise to additional time off or special recognition at events.

Home Safety Challenges: To extend the safety culture to their personal lives, you could periodically introduce home safety challenges. These could involve sharing safety tips, creating safe home environments, or participating in relevant workshops.

Continuous Training: Commit to sending yourself and your employees to ongoing safety training to ensure that you are all are well-equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to maintain a safe workplace and home space.

AGC of Utah believes that by integrating safety practices into all aspects of life, we not only enhance the well-being of our workers but also create a safer, more resilient workforce.

Your support in promoting and encouraging participation in a program such as this is crucial to your success. We look forward to working together to reinforce a culture of safety within our organizations. AGC strives to provide the industry with critical safety classes and conferences and would love to receive any suggestions to future offerings that would be relevant to your company.
