In honor of our 10-year anniversary, we partnered with Upbring, a Texas-wide child-well being organization. We believe that there is no better way to celebrate our decade of workplace safety than to exemplify our first core value, passionately help others win, by developing a community partnership with Upbring. 

With North Texas Giving Day upon us, STC and Upbring want to highlight our partnership as the community gets into the spirit of giving. At STC we work to preserve human life in the workplace, while Upbring works hard to save children’s lives. Creating this meaningful partnership allows both STC and Upbring to elevate our communities. 

How Upbring Helps

Upbring works to heal communities by shifting perspectives and re-imagining systems. Their work increases child wellness, vitality and safety. STC’s partnership with Upbring seeks to highlight the community and cultural shifts needed to improve the well-being of children across the state. Upbring offers services including foster care, adoption, children’s centers and education. 

Upbring also started a Supervised Independent Living program, BeREAL, designed to help young adults on their journey to independence through education, planning and mentorship. 

How You Can Help

Because of generosity from supporters like you, Upbring is able to provide apartments that are move-in ready for future professionals who are seeking stability and support in their BeREAL program. 

In the spirit of North Texas Giving Day this week, STC hopes to continue highlighting our community partnership with Upbring and the transformational work they do.

Safe + Sound Week is an event celebrated nationwide over the course of a week in August. This is an event for recognizing the successes of workplace health and safety programs. During this week, companies around the country get their employees together to celebrate their success and provide information and ideas about keeping their workplace safe. 

Why Every Organization Should Participate

By participating in Safe + Sound Week, you are making an effort to recognize the importance of safety in the workplace for your organization. By implementing health and safety programs, and celebrating their success, your organization will be actively preventing injuries and fatalities in the workplace. No job is too safe to skip over safety measures, so it is crucial that each employee understands that each of their actions can make your workplace safer. 

How STC Celebrated Safe + Sound Week

Each of our employees makes a lifelong commitment to safety, and Safe + Sound Week is when we get to look back on our successes. We consider each day that an employee goes home to their family a success, because the safety procedures at their work helped make it happen. Every day, employees all over the world suffer through injuries and fatalities at work that could have been prevented. We make it our mission to ensure that safety is the number one priority.

At STC, we believe that safety should be celebrated in every situation because workplace safety saves the lives of workers every single day. That’s why we are highlighting the importance of roofing safety in honor of National Roofing Week. Here is the Safety Training & Compliance guide to roofing safety in honor of National Roofing Week, June 6th through 12th:

 

What is National Roofing Week?

Every year, National Roofing Week serves as a holiday to bring awareness to the importance of roofs for homes and businesses alike. Safety plays an essential role in roofing, as there are many risks involved with working at such great heights. We participate in National Roofing week to help increase awareness of the importance of safety when it comes to roofing jobs. 

 

Your Guide to Roofing Safety

When it comes to roofing safety, there are many things that you need to know in order to stay safe on the job. For starters, it is important to signify or close off areas where workers may be prone to falling. Each roof needs to have a raised warning line 15 feet from its edge, and barriers blocking off each skylight or roof hatch. In many cases, safety nets may need to be installed because accidents happen and workers may lose footing, falling off of the roof. 

 

The Importance of Safety Training

As with any job involving risks, safety training will play a crucial role in the safety of your entire crew. We encourage regular training sessions where workers can learn the guidelines to stay safe while roofing and build a safety culture where each worker can encourage each other to follow proper safety procedures. The importance of safety training before roofing begins cannot be overstated. Regular, accurate training sessions can very well save lives in the future. 

 

No matter how you choose to stay safe during roofing jobs, STC is here to help you make roofing safety simple. We are dedicated to providing Managed Safety Services, Safety Consulting Services and Instructor-Led Training to keep all of your employees safe on the job.

STC Safety Award

For the past four months, STC has partnered with Harmon, Inc. at the American Airlines campus construction site in Fort Worth, TX. Recently, Harmon was recognized by the site’s GC, Austin Commercial, as the first top safety subcontractor of the month for January 2018.

STC Safety Award

Working alongside our outstanding client, STC’s Alex Navarro has been instrumental in elevating the site’s safety knowledge and awareness for all personnel working on this high-profile project. Harmon’s award is a testament to their employees’ buy-in and acceptance of STC’s consistent safety oversight and focused services.

Through STC’s approach, Harmon has constantly identified hazards, assessed risks, and taken action in order to prevent safety incidents.

This type of safety culture has given way to a more productive and efficient work site for Austin Commercial, Harmon, and all other subcontractors involved with the project.

At STC, we are focused on preserving the word’s most precious resource – human life.

In order to do that, we understand the importance of building and sustaining effective safety cultures that produce tangible results over time.
