The entire Langston Construction Company Staff, which includes project managers, superintendents, and skilled workers, has completed confined space, fall protection, and trenching/excavation safety training in the past 8 months.The training consisted of identifying the hazards, selecting and using the proper personal protective equipment, as well as implementing the proper rescue procedures if an accident does occur.
David Devita with Carolina Safey Consultants conducted the training at Langston Construction Company's Training Center. Company owned safety equipment was utilized to conduct hands-on training on how to inspect and properly use this safety equipment while performing the required task.
Falls, trench cave-ins, and confined space accidents are the leading causes of deaths in the construction industry and keeping our employees, subcontractors, and the public safe while performing these tasks is a top priority. Training Langston employees in confined space, fall protection, and trenching hazards will help us maintain our goal of an accident free environment. Langston Construction Company will be re-certifying all of its employees in CPR and First Aid this Fall.
