Staying Safe in the Workplace: Hot Weather

With summer in full swing, triple digit temperatures can be the norm in many regions of the United States. For those who work outside these conditions can cause long term health issues or even death if proper steps are not taken.

Tips to Stay Safe:

During hot weather, you will need to drink more liquid than your thirst indicates. Increase your fluid intake regardless of your activity level and drink 16-32 ounces of cool fluids each hour in 15 minute intervals.

Choose light-weight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing.  In the hot sun, a wide-brimmed hat will keep the head cool. Make sure you wear to prevent sunburn.

If you are unaccustomed to working in hot weather, start slowly and pick up the pace gradually.  If heavy activity in the heat causes a racing heart rate, shortness of breath, lightheadedness, confusion, or you feel faint or week, stop all activity immediately, and get to a cool or shady area to rest.

Valley View Hospital

Glenwood Springs, Colorado

Valley View Hospital in Glenwood Springs, Colorado is constructing a new comprehensive Cancer Center to connect with the existing hospital facility. The 29,600-square foot cancer center will occupy the main floor of the five-story expansion. The Cancer Center is a partnership with the University of Colorado and will provide the most advanced outpatient chemotherapy treatment options.

RJ Griffin & Company is the Construction Manager on the jobsite and S2M Construction is the concrete subcontractor. Brian Cocco (77) sold both Meva Lite and KLK to construct the 3 cores, as seen in the picture above. When complete, this hospital will be the largest one of its kind in the valley and will service all neighboring towns including Aspen.

Brian Bennett (77) is worked with S2M Construction to convert their concrete equipment to Wyco concrete vibrators. Brian sold the features and benefits of the Wyco line, the contractor was very pleased with the Wyco line and will continue to use their products throughout the job.

Thanks to Brian Bennett and Brian Cocco for all their hard work on this project.
