How to choose the best face mask for your job site 

Remember the stone ages when we all just went around spitting in each other’s faces like a bunch of angry alpacas? That’s so 2019 BC (Before Covid).

Night Time Worker in Hi-Vis

Why proper reflective material is crucial for hi-vis clothing

In 1895, the first domino fell in what would ultimately become modern-day Daylight Savings Time when George Hudson proposed a two-hour daylight-saving shift. A shift worker by day and entomologist by night, Hudson sought additional after-hours daylight for collecting insects. Over a decade later, in 1908, Port Arthur, Ontario became the first city to enact DST. And, well, you know the rest (unless, of course, you live in Arizona—by the way, what’s up with that?).  Read More

Ergodyne Trex Ice Traction

Preventing worksite fall accidents with ice cleats and spikeless traction devices.

If over a quarter century of America’s Funniest Home Videos has taught us anything, it’s that people fall—a lot. But with falls accounting for over 30,000 deaths in the U.S. each year (the third highest among accidental deaths), it’s not always as funny as Bob Saget, Tom Bergeron, Alfonso Ribiero or *insert dad-joke machine here* make it seem. And while Canada may not have AFV, they still have their fair share of wipeouts. Each year in the North, over 42,000 workers are injured in fall accidents—accounting for nearly one out of every five “time-loss injuries”.

Demand the Safety to do Great Things

Tackling the largest high-rise solar panel installation in US history.

San Antonio, 1880. The Pearl Brewery opens its doors, on its way to becoming the city’s largest employer and the top brewery in all of Texas. Flash forward to 2001. For the first time in 118 years, the suds stopped flowing. Abandoned and desolate, The Pearl Brewery—and all the excitement, pride and economic mojo that went along with it—had gone flat. It’s hollowed-out shell left to decay in the city’s center.

Root River Workers

Veteran loggers show what it takes to tackle America’s most dangerous job.

The first thing that hits you is the smell. Then the flies. Fresh cow pies baking in the morning sun mingle with sour sweat, mildew and gasoline, attracting a dive-bombing frenzy of winged belligerence—the little bastards are relentless. It’s barely past 8 a.m. when we meet up with the boys from Root River Hardwoods in the grazing pasture that abuts the logging site but the hot, heavy morning already carries the weight of midday. 90°F and rising with high humidity. It’s going to be a slog.
