It’s no secret that the construction industry is dealing with a skilled labor shortage as many skilled craftspeople have dropped out of the industry and don’t plan to return. Additionally, an entire generation of younger workers are no longer even considering construction as a viable career option as parents are increasingly steering graduates to four-year colleges and white-collar careers. Now, as older workers are retiring, there simply isn’t anyone ready to take their spots. On average, Robinson Construction employs more than 300 skilled craftspeople who complete projects all over the United States. In this article by Mike Holmes Jr., he discusses how “the trades are a great, stable career” and how without the skilled trades, we wouldn’t have the rest of the careers we value so highly. #rccoemployees #EndSkilledTradesStigma #skilledtrades #construction

Community Counseling Center has chosen Frank Robinson to receive Community Counseling Center Citizen of the Year 2020 Award.

Robinson is the CEO of Robinson Construction Company and has been with the company for 50 years and successfully led the company as president for more than 40 years. CCC director of Public relations and special projects Sharon Braun praised Robinson’s contributions to the community in earning this most recent recognition.

“Frank is a pillar in the community, utilizing his knowledge, resources, and leadership skills to help foster growth in the communities in which his team members live and work,” Braun said.

In addition to the many civic organizations Frank supports on a regular basis, he is a founding member of the Perry County Community Foundation and has been an active and continuous member of the Board since its inception in 2013. Frank was also instrumental in bringing the Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial project to life and currently serves as an advisory director on the Missouri’s National Veterans Memorial Board.

“For years and yet today, Frank continues his passion for helping others and making a difference for positive change in Perryville,” Braun said. “He does so not only through his words but through continual involvement, action and support for the community in which he resides and loves. Frank is very proud to be a part of Perryville’s growth and achievements. He knows that when a job needs to be done or there is a need to be filled, the community comes together and makes it happen. Oftentimes, Frank is right there with them.”

Community Counseling Center recognized Robinson as Citizen of the Year for all of his contributions throughout in helping others, and Perryville that he truly loves.

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!
