Today’s #ConstructionSafetyWeek topic is Be Safe, Be Well Rested. The construction industry often comes with early hours, long commutes and nightshift work. This can interrupt your body’s natural sleep/wake cycle and can have major consequences on your physical and mental health. Some simple things you can do to improve your quality of sleep, overall well-being, and safety on the jobsite include:

🏋🏼 Exercise – the more energy you expel during the day, the easier it is for your body to enter a restful sleep

🍎 Food & Beverage – avoid heavy meals before bedtime and caffeinated drinks within 6 hours of bedtime

😴 Sleep Routine – stay consistent with your bedtime and waketime, even on the weekends

🥱 Sleep Quantity – aim for 7+ hours of sleep per night

🛏 Sleep Environment – your sleep area should be dark, free of distraction and noise, and keep it cool – around 68 degrees #rccosafety #constructionsafety #besafebewellrested

Today’s safety topic is Be Relentless. To prevent injuries we must be relentless in paying attention to risk and monitoring what is happening around us at all times. Our safety coin and the messages engraved on the coin are daily reminders to Be Relentless every day by choosing to work safe for yourself, your coworkers, and the people that love you. Injuries happen in a flash, so we can never take safety for granted. #rccosafety #constructionsafetyweek #constructionsafety #berelentless

Today’s #ConstructionSafetyWeek topic is Healthy Mind, Healthy Body. Being safe means paying attention to both mind and body. Our people are our most valuable asset and we must take an active role in our physical and mental health. Exercise/stretching, meditation, adequate sleep, and a healthy diet can have a tremendous impact over time on your well-being. If we all strive for a healthier mind and body, we can shape a healthier future for the construction industry. #rccosafety #healthymindhealthybody

Today kicks off #ConstructionSafetyWeek. At Robinson we are committed to safety and ZERO INCIDENTS on ALL jobsites. We are kicking off today with each team member signing a jobsite safety commitment pledge banner that will be displayed on the jobsite. The banner reads just as their safety coins that they carry in their pockets as a reminder to work safe:

-Stop Unsafe Acts
-Do The Right Thing Every Time
-Zero Is Possible
-Zero Is Not Our Goal, It’s Our Expectation

Today’s daily topic is Be Present, Be Focused. This is the exact thing our employees are pledging to do. #rccosafety #constructionsafety #bepresentbefocused

What do you do when you can’t reach your target location with a crane? Easy, call in a helicopter! With the help of our subcontractors, Erickson Incorporated and S.M. Lawrence Company , we recently replaced 5 - 15,000 pound HVAC units on a project at the Frito-Lay plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas. We had a 48-hour window to set the units and get them running for Frito-Lay, so they could maintain production of their delicious chips and snacks!

Hanna Bohnert, employee benefits coordinator for Robinson Construction, has completed all requirements for the Society for Human Resource Management Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) credential. The SHRM-CP certification is a pinnacle achievement and global standard in certification for the HR profession. The SHRM involves rigorous research that organizes eight behavioral competencies into three clusters: leadership, interpersonal, and business. Additionally, there are 15 HR knowledge areas that are critical to the success of any HR professional.

By incorporating key HR competencies and knowledge into the SHRM-CP exam, SHRM's certifications demonstrate to the global business community that the credential-holder has strong capabilities in both aspects of HR practice—competency and knowledge—that are required for effective job performance.

One good thing that came with the cold temperatures and snow is that it allowed some of Robinson’s supervisors extra time for training. QA/QC Manager Ross Moldenhauer and QA/QC Assistant Manager Brandon McIntosh were on hand last week to provide surveying training using a Robotic Total Station (RTS). The training covered the basics of the RTS and the functions and tools that can be utilized while using the surveying equipment. The supervisors were then presented with a mock project to lay out/survey using the RTS.
