During the week of May 7th-11th, Gaston Electrical joined hundreds of other leading companies from the construction industry in recognizing National Construction Safety Week. According to the official website, the mission of Safety Week is to “collectively raise the awareness of the construction industry’s continuing commitment to eliminating worker injury, and to clearly communicate its dedication to a shared culture of care and concern and the belief that every week must be Safety Week.”
2018 marked the fourth year of participation in the event for Gaston – and we successfully spread the word to all of our team members through site visits, emails, and social media campaigns. This year – Corporate Safety Director Rick Coakley focused on ladder safety training during his “toolbox talk” with our skilled team members. He also took time to introduce our new ladder inspection policy. Highlights of the busy week also included visits to the UMASS Boston Residence Halls, Boston Celtics Auerbach Center at Boston Landing, and AMGEN Cambridge. Gaston is partnered with leading General Contractors on these projects and our commitment to safety for our team (and theirs) was clearly highlighted.
Huge thanks to our field teams and project partners for an informative and engaging week – we look forward to 2019. Below are some photos from our various site visits.
