On Tuesday, August 13, 2019, GBCA co-produced a 6ABC Facebook Live video about worker safety in hot conditions. Hosted by Gina Gannon, the video was filmed at Bittenbender Construction’s LOVE Park Welcome Center Renovation Project. The video documented part of GBCA’s efforts to support OSHA’s Water. Rest. Shade campaign, which promotes awareness about heat- and sun-related risks and injuries.

Gina interviewed several people about the importance of heat awareness and safety in construction:

  • Lauren Hanan, General Building Contractors Association
  • Dennis Dougherty, Med-Tex Services, Inc.
  • Jenni Ann Williams, Bittenbender Construction, LP
  • Art Denoncour, Bittenbender Construction, LP

 

This video was co-produced as part of GBCA’s 2019 partnership with 6ABC, and was one stop in GBCA’s and Med-Tex Services, Inc.’s Water. Rest. Shade. Campaign, when they visited several GBCA member jobsites to hand out hydration, sunblock, and sun protection gear. Thanks to the following members for participating in our campaign!
