MACPHERSON IS RE-BRANDING!
That’s right team... it’s 2019 and MacPherson is ready for a new look! Check out our new logo! With the rise of contemporary architecture... our traditional company logo needed to be put to rest. We swapped out our color scheme for a very earthy palette that pulls from the natural colors found in the Pacific Northwest. Along with a new logo... we will be launching a new company website, updating job site signs, ordering hats, t-shirts, changing email signatures, and more! Keep an eye out for these changes as they will be happening very soon!

FALL PREVENTION AWARENESS
Article by ERNwest
Many construction workers have suffered a fall and consider themselves lucky to be alive. Each year, falls account for one of every three construction fatalities. Falls; however, can be hard to control because they happen in many different circumstances. Regardless of the situation, almost all falls are preventable, and none should be fatal.
Here are a few reminders to keep in mind:
- Keep your eyes open.
- Inspect your fall protection equipment and keep it in good condition.
- Make sure that there are guardrails around every open-sided platform.
- Inspect and secure ladders before use.
- Cover and label all open holes and floors.
- Keep walkways free of tripping hazards such as cords and welding leads.
- Watch out for unprotected skylights on roofs.
- Always use 3 points of contact to ascend and descend ladders.
- Stay aware of changing conditions such as scaffold builds.
"EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS REAL."
