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

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
