Being safe during winter is about preparation and good judgement. The holiday season is a time for family and friends to gather. It is a time for reflection and appreciation for everyone and everything in our lives, but it is also a challenging and busy time of the year. With so much to do and think about, it’s easy to forget about safety.
The safety of all team members, at work and at home, is a top priority for Aldridge. Many of our jobs require working in extreme conditions or potentially dangerous scenarios. Through our safety best-practices, we minimize the risk of exposure to potential hazards and equip our team with the training and resources they need to stay safe.
Industry stakeholders, including Aldridge CEO Steve Rivi, came together yesterday with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration to renew the Electrical Transmission and Distribution Partnership agreement for an additional five years.

Aldridge is always looking for ways to improve and better protect our employees. We remain focused on our IIF – Incident and Injury Free commitment. In recent years, through analyzing head injury data in the construction industry, we realized that the hard hat — arguably the most essential piece of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) — has stayed more or less the same for decades.
