When faced with the opportunity to build a bridge in Nicaragua in 2017, without hesitation I knew it was for me. I love the thought of an adventure but even more important was the opportunity to help people that need it most.
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.
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.

Senior level executives from some of the country’s leading construction firms met last week in Orlando to discuss strategies for improving safety in the construction industry. Ken Aldridge, Chairman of the Board of Aldridge Electric, was among the group of 17 CEO’s participating in the forum. These leaders are dedicated to eliminating injuries and work throughout the year to create an IIF culture within their organizations. Twice a year, these leaders come together to share lessons learned and best practices in the journey to being Incident and Injury Free.
This latest event was hosted by Charlie Bacon of Limbach Mechanical, a founding member of the IIF CEO Forum. The two days of discussion also included project tours at Disney World and a new high rise hotel under construction in the Orlando area.
Aldridge is proud to participate in this important industry event and is committed to sustainable improvement in safety.
