WELCOME TO THE MACFAM!
As Summer slowly starts to come to an end (well...when did it even begin?) we wave goodbye to our seasonal help and say hello to not one..not two...but THREE new members of the MacPherson team.
Luis (left) started a little over a week ago and has been hired on as one of our general laborers. Some fun facts...his ultimate vacation spot would be Japan and he is secretly an artist!
Mark (middle) started last Tuesday and has been hired on as a carpenter. He just moved here with his wife and kids from out of state. His hobbies include outdoor adventures with family and fishing.
On August 27th we will be welcoming another employee (mystery man on the right) Todd who Becki referred for us! Thanks for looking out Becki! He will be hired on as a carpenter, so our team will be ready to roll come September.
A big welcome to you all! We are glad to have you here as part of the team!
"ALONE WE CAN DO SO LITTLE, TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH."
I would like to give out a friendly reminder that we should be doing all we can to keep our job sites from becoming safety hazards! Some of the most dangerous situations can occur due to common mistakes that could easily be avoided. What can you do to stay safe?
A lack of good house keeping can lead to dangerous situations. Be sure to keep a tidy work environment and it will greatly reduce the risk of an accident happening on the job.
Make sure that any safety equipment you might be wearing out in the field is being worn properly. If you are unsure of what the standards are for safety equipment, don't be afraid to reach out and ask.
Think ahead. Before commencing work...think about the "what if..." and make sure that the task you are about to start is planned and safety precautions are being taken.
Lastly, communicate! Communicate with your co-workers about hazards that are potentially existing on the job site. This is an essential element of protecting ourselves and others from being injured on the job.
FEATURED PROJECT: EAST MERCER

SHARE YOUR SUMMER FUN!
With as much vacation time as everyone has been taking...I'm sure you all have lots to share from your Summer adventures so far. Feel free to send in some fun pictures of what you MCD employees have been up to lately. Camping trip? Fishing trip? Stealing Kent's stapler? Bought a house? (Aliyah and Dawson bought a house...no big deal...). Let's hear about your Summer!
