Construction sites are dynamic environments, with multiple hazards that can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities. While it's important to prioritize your own safety on the job, it's equally important to consider the safety of others who may be working on the site after you. By thinking of the next person, we can help ensure a safer and more productive work environment for everyone involved.
Joe and Cameron discuss the importance of thinking of the next person and what that can look like.

Safety Week: "It Won't Happen to Me"
Joe and Cameron sit down to talk about Wednesday's Safety Week topic: "It Won't Happen to Me."
Many of us fall into the trap of thinking that bad things only happen to other people, and that we are somehow immune to risks or dangers. This can be especially true when it comes to things like health, safety, or finances.
However, the reality is that none of us are invincible, and bad things can happen to anyone. Joe and Cameron discuss the importance of taking risks seriously and planning for the future. By acknowledging risks and taking preventative measures, we can better protect ourselves and avoid potentially devastating consequences.
Safety Week: Being Good to Yourself

We often get so caught up in our daily routines and responsibilities that we forget to prioritize our own wellbeing. However, taking care of ourselves should be a top priority in order to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Joe and Cameron discuss some ways they are good to themselves and the importance of prioritizing this.
Safety Week: Distracted Driving
Joe and Cameron sit down to talk about Monday's Safety Week topics: Distracted Driving
Distracted driving refers to any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road, including texting, eating, or adjusting the radio. It's estimated that distracted driving is a factor in over 25% of all car accidents, which can have devastating consequences for everyone involved. It's important to prioritize safety while driving by eliminating distractions and staying focused on the road. Here are some tips for avoiding distractions while driving:
· Put your phone away: Avoid using your phone while driving, even for calls or texts. If you need to use your phone, pull over to a safe location first.
· Avoid eating: Eating while driving can be distracting and increase the risk of accidents.
· Keep the music volume low: Loud music can be distracting, so keep the volume at a moderate level.
· Plan ahead: Make sure you know your route before you start driving, and try to avoid any other activities that may be distracting.
Remember, safety should always come first when driving. By staying focused and avoiding distractions, we can help prevent accidents and keep ourselves and others safe on the road.
