University of Miami AGC students visit the platform 3750 construction site

POMPANO BEACH, Fla., May 4, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) – Current Builders (www.currentbuilders.com) is proud to be part of the nationwide Construction Safety Week celebration, which takes place May 3-7, 2021. Be present, be focused, be safe and aim for the holistic health of workers in the industry. As one of the leading construction companies in Florida, Current Builders has a one week educational program planned for its employees and will also be hosting students from the University of Miami chapter of the South Florida Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) on a tour of the US, one of the latest projects by Current Builders, Platform 3750 in Coconut Grove.

“This year’s theme is essential,” said Michael C. Taylor, CEO and President of Current Builders. “After we have survived all the stresses of 2020, it is important that our industry focuses on the holistic health of our employees. At Current Builders, our safety training goes beyond the use of appropriate protective equipment and examines general wellbeing by discussing topics such as mental health, depression, addiction, and fatigue. This focus on spiritual awareness, in addition to physical protection protocols, will help our employees develop a deeper understanding of what it means to be truly safe. “

Deborah Hampton, Director of Risk and Safety for Current Builders, has created a series of daily toolbox conversations on a variety of topics to create a dialogue among workers about how to better take care of themselves and each other. In addition, Hampton runs entertaining competitions for workers that give prizes to those who can see the dangers on the daily safety signs. Also included in this year’s Safety Week are demonstrations of Milwaukee Tools and the student tour for UM AGC members to see real working conditions on Platform 3750, a mixed-use project in Coconut Grove, on Friday May 7th.

“It is important for all experienced and inexperienced employees to fully understand the role of mental awareness in the safety of the team. Distractions can take a worker out of focus, which can lead to serious and even fatal accidents, ”said Hampton. “It is important that employees look out for one another and learn to recognize the signs of someone who may be having problems. Safety Week reminds all of our employees that resources are available to help them be present and focused. “

Hampton has developed numerous physical and mental security protocols for the team. One of the most popular exercises among employees is the morning stretch and flex program. This activity wakes everyone up and makes them focus on the tasks ahead.

“Nothing is more important than the safety of our team,” continued Taylor. “At Current Builders, we take great pride in the programs our company has implemented and how diligent our people are with tracking them. This national celebration is a wonderful opportunity for us to deepen the knowledge we have gained and to work again to ensure that physical and mental safety is our top priority. “
