Welcome to the start of Construction Safety Week - A week dedicated to discussing the different ways to keep the people of our industry safe!
Today, we are discussing the importance of mental awareness. Being present means being actively alert of your safety and the safety of those around you. Consistent focus and awareness are key factors in reducing the risk of accidents. Even the smallest of distractions can cause an injury.
If you notice any signs of someone who may need help, be sure to let a supervisor know.

Thanks, Clancy & Theys Construction Company for this awesome share and for attending ABC-VA's Superintendents' Academy! #ABCMeritShopProud

Last week, four assistant superintendents from our Virginia Division attended the Superintendent’s Academy, facilitated by the Association of Builders and Contractors – Virginia Chapter. Over the course of the two-day training, our team – Cristian Flores, Felicia Jarvis, Noel Josue and Phil Yambrick – networked with industry colleagues, and attended interactive sessions on topics geared toward “The Modern Superintendent.”

The class of 18 took in lessons from Mitch Filipowicz (Senior Vice-President, HITT Contracting), who discussed the changing atmosphere of construction and the shift from the “good ole boys” mentality to a more communicative leadership style; from Frank Trujillo (Vice-President, Miller & Long Concrete), and Amanda Ruckman (Education Director, ABC-VA), who encouraged the group to become active in industry associations like the ABC-VA and to stay abreast of legislation and bills that have direct impact on our industry; and from Tom Hern (Superintendent, Davis Construction), who led the planning/drawing session—as well as a fun and competitive marshmallow challenge.

All-in-all, the Academy was a great success, and a fantastic opportunity for building relationships between colleagues and for expanding their skills and knowledge and passion for what we do.
