As all of you know, GCC participated in the first U.S. Safety Week, which ran from Sunday, May 4 to Saturday, May 10. Construction companies all across our nation joined forces with a single aim: to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety. At GCC, we are pleased to report that we celebrated safety week by
1) Experiencing no incidents or accidents on our job sites
2) Communicating the positive safety trends with our crews and teams
3) Conducting hard hat safety toolbox talks, and
The safety team and I visited GCC job sites and locations, serving either breakfast, lunch, or dinner to our crews, depending upon the time of the day. We took the time to thank each and every team member for their great work and commitment to a safe workplace.
The chart below indicates we visited 9 sites, meeting with 210 employees:

We also conducted hard hat assessments to ensure our PPE was in good shape, not expired, and sufficient to protect our valuable assets. It was fun as well as educational.
