How to Stay Safe in the Heat

Many of us look forward to summer as a time to relax by the pool or visit the beach. At MetroPower, summer also means increasing our safety precautions to ensure no one is hurt by high temperatures and humidity.

According to OSHA, thousands of workers every year become ill while working in extreme heat or humid conditions. There are a range of illnesses that can be brought on by heat, and they can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical condition.

A Heartfelt Thank You

I wish to offer my personal thanks to each and every one of you. 2020 was a very challenging year. None of us expected—nor prepared for—a global pandemic, yet you all continue to rise to the occasion with each new obstacle that comes your way.

The pandemic affected every group in our company, including craft workers who continued to respond to customer needs and fulfill our obligations. It affected HR and safety, who continued to monitor government guidelines and laws while implementing strategies to keep us safe. It affected accounting as they worked to adjust budgets to account for unanticipated expenses. It affected management as we worked to balance strategies to protect employees, customers, communities and our shareholders.

More than anything though, it has affected you and your families in ways we might not even know. And yet, you ALL have shown resilience and carried out your duties.

For all you’ve done and continue to do, I thank you!

Personal Experiences with COVID-19 Help Reinforce Safety Measures

COVID-19 has resulted in death tolls that once left us anxious and fearful, but now seem to be less of a shock factor. Historically, desensitization to disaster is a common human response and we become less affected and more accustomed to the effects of disaster.

As we listened to the personal experiences of co-workers during a recent Safety Stand Down, we were reminded that this is NOT the time to relax the safety measures established to slow the spread and prevent the contraction of COVID-19. <Read More>

From boyhood, hard work has always provided me with gratification and fulfillment. Seeing the fruits of one’s labor is one of the most wonderful gifts of all. There is nothing that compares to seeing a task, a project or a dream realized. Give me a hurdle and I’ll clear it. Thomas Edison famously said, “Opportunity is missed by most people because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Why all this talk about work… hard work? One word: COVID. It looks like COVID-19 will linger, and its effect on the construction industry will linger longer. We may have to work a little harder to thrive through the next 12–18 months, but I think it can provide opportunity for the MPI team of doers. I have got my overalls on and I am ready. Are you?  I know you are—let’s do this. Danny
