To maintain a safe and productive work environment and to meet established standards of customer services and efficiency, the Company expects employees to be reliable and to be punctual in reporting to scheduled work. Absenteeism and/or tardiness place a burden on other employees and on the Company and are disruptive to the work environment. A fundamental responsibility assumed by every employee in accepting employment is to report to work promptly and regularly.

Employees are required to call and report to their division office any unscheduled absence or tardiness prior to 7:00 AM for field employees and 8:00 AM for office employees. If possible, employees are encouraged to notify their manager/supervisor at least two hours prior to any unscheduled absence or tardiness.

Excused absences and tardiness are defined as any time off that is scheduled and approved by the employee’s direct supervisor, such as, vacation time; time off for funeral, jury duty, or military duty; temporary leave of absence; or any time off as covered by FMLA, Worker’s Compensation, or ADA. The employee’s direct supervisor has the discretion to approve or deny any request for time off other than leave required by law. Failure to follow the direct supervisor’s decision will subject to disciplinary procedures.

Employees who fail to maintain an acceptable attendance record or show a pattern of multiple unexcused absences will be subject to disciplinary measures. Unexcused absences or tardiness will affect an employee’s performance review and is subject to disciplinary measures as follows:

  • First Offense: Verbal warning with documentation placed in personnel file.
  • Second Offense: Written warning and copy placed in personnel file.
  • Third Offense: Termination subject to management review.

May is Food Allergy Action Month

A food allergy occurs when the body has a specific immune response to certain foods. Sometimes, the body’s response can be severe or life-threatening. Food allergies are a growing food safety and public health concern, according to the CDC. It is also estimated that between 4 and 6 percent of U.S. children are affected by some type of food allergy.

Among other things, Food Allergy Action Month was created to spread awareness about what food allergies are, how to recognize them and how to help someone who is having an allergic reaction. Common symptoms of an allergic reaction to food include the following:

  • A tingling sensation in the mouth
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue and throat
  • Itching, hives and a rash throughout the body
  • Cramping, diarrhea or vomiting
  • Wheezing and difficulty breathing
  • Dizziness or light-headedness
  • Loss of consciousness

Safety First, Always First is our number one core value. Last week, was National Safety Stand-Down week to prevent falls in construction.

OSHA reports, every year in the U.S. more than 800 construction workers die, and nearly 137,000 are seriously injured while on the job. Construction workers engage in many activities that may expose them to serious hazards, such as falling from rooftops, unguarded machinery, being struck by heavy construction equipment, electrocutions, silica dust, and asbestos.

The video below is provided by OSHA to show how quickly workers can be injured or killed on the job and is intended to assist those in the industry to identify, reduce, and eliminate construction-related hazards.
