Just a quick reminder for anyone who couldn't make this week's safety call, we know that many of you are facing bitter cold temperatures in the field. We ask that you make the best decisions possible for your utility line clearance teams (e.g., assess conditions, delay shifts, schedule breaks) and we will support you 100%.
The safety of our craftworkers is more important than productivity. We are in business to protect our employees. Now is a great time to include our vegetation management customers in this conversation. Communicate clearly the positive actions that you plan to take and why. We have your back.
We understand that there's a delicate balance between managing safety and productivity--especially when downtime includes a loss of income for your team members. But we also understand that any actions taken today to bolster our safety culture will have tremendous payoffs down the road.
Stay warm. Stay safe.
