This weekend we will "fall back” as Daylight Saving Time ends and the days get shorter on Sunday, November 5th. With the time change, most of us will be driving in the dark more often. Driving in the dark, along with fatigue from long work hours, and other distractions can make driving at night more dangerous.

As we head into the season, be aware of a different type of "fall.” The kind that can cause injury. Preventing falls is something we can work towards in the office and at home.

Life after Hurricane Harvey means continuing to rebuild and recover from the storm and flooding. Unfortunately, that also means scammers could become more prevalent, preying on individuals who are stressed and overwhelmed. Be careful of contractors coming from other areas or new companies starting to profit from individuals’ loss.

The Texas coast is preparing for the arrival of storm Harvey this weekend. While it has not reached hurricane strength at the time of posting this, it could do so by the time it makes landfall. The storm may weaken once it hits land but a major concern is how slowly it is moving.

Tropical Storm Cindy mostly bypassed Southeast Texas, last week. However, it is a good reminder to take time today to prepare your home and business for possible storms. As in any safety situation, it is better to take an hour or two to prepare than get into the middle of an issue and not know what to do.

Many families and friends will be gathering tomorrow, and through the weekend, to enjoy good food and time together. While you are taking a break from work please do not take a break from safety awareness. It is easy to forget about safety when we are celebrating and not worried about seemingly safe tasks that we have done before.

As we head into the fall months and the days get shorter, take precautions when driving at night. Driving after dark is the most dangerous time to drive as more accidents happen between dusk and dawn. Nighttime driving can be more difficult if someone has vision problems. During the holiday season, more people are on the road during the evening hours as they are traveling to and from holiday parties and events.

Vehicle safety is important to all parts of life including your personal and work experiences. Backing up vehicles can be a major concern on job sites and around town since it is often hard to see people who are in the area. Moreover, school is back in session so it is even more important to watch for children in the pick-up and drop-off areas.

Last week in our blog, we looked at what steps to take in preparing for a hurricane. If local government and law enforcement officers call for a mandatory evacuation in the event of a storm, we recommend you follow appropriate safety measures and your preparedness plan. However, a mandatory evacuation is not always called or some people still choose to stay in their homes or cities. For the second part of hurricane preparation, we look at what to do if you stay during a storm.

August and September are always the time of year when communities near the Gulf Coast start thinking about the possibility for hurricanes and preparing for potential storms. It is much easier to respond to crisis if you have a plan versus waiting to the last minute to think of what you should do.

It is mid-July and we still have some of the hottest days ahead for a Southeast Texas summer. Whether you are working on the job or at your home, it is important to stay alert and try to prevent any heat related illnesses.

Summer means going to the beaches, lakes, or staying at home around the pool. Water activities can be a great way to stay cool and enjoy the summer heat but do not forget about extra safety.

Since we just experienced a shelter-in-place because of the bomb threat in Beaumont, do you know what to do in such as situation? Whether you are at home or at work, knowing what steps to take during this type of situation is important. Not only does it help protect workers and surrounding residents, it also helps authorities complete their job efficiently and maintain a safe environment.

In the construction industry, workers have to be prepared to work in various weather conditions and do so safely. Mason Construction, Ltd. is headquartered in Southeast Texas so we have seen our fair share of rain. When employees work in rain, they face more challenges on the job site. Rain can make surfaces slippery and visibility low.

Businesses have to be aware and plan for many types of possible emergencies. Fire safety is often at the top of the list. One of the critical questions is whether an employee should fight a small fire with an extinguisher or to evacuate.

In light of the recent flaring at the ExxonMobil refinery in Beaumont, we thought it would be useful to discuss what flares are used for. Mason Construction, Ltd. works in a variety of industrial facilities and many of them use flares as safety devices. Most of the time flaring is not cause for alarm.

Here in Southeast Texas, we all know that the weather is unpredictable. This past Christmas was one of the warmest on record and now that we are into January, it still feels warm out. But this weekend we are supposed to get some colder weather. That means conditions Southeast Texans may not be accustomed to.
