This week, Aldridge welcomed our Intern Class of 2019! Many of our past interns have come on board as full-time Aldridge employees. This year's class of 26 is the largest yet and we are excited to watch their successes this summer.
A team of 10 Aldridge employees will be traveling to Bolivia, located in Central South America, late this summer for our third year working with Bridges to Prosperity. This team will help build a footbridge that provides access to critical resources like healthcare, education, and employment and creates a long term positive impact on a local community. To get an idea of the size of the country, view the images below.
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.
