DAY 5!! Safety Toolbox Talk Topic:

Working safely does not end today but continues every day in our professional and personal lives. We all must support each other and agree to speak up when something doesn’t look right, or there is a safer way to perform a task. Let’s talk about a few things we can all do to make us safer:

Have a Plan:
Assess each task and develop a plan before starting to identify, eliminate, and control potential hazards. Each operation performed must have a plan and the necessary material, equipment, and proper controls. Make sure to review and understand the plan before starting work. If the plan has changed or new hazards are identified, stop work and update the plan. Additionally, ensure all proper PPE has been supplied and is properly worn.

Inspect the Area, Tools, and Equipment:
Before starting a new task, take a few minutes to perform a safety inspection of the job site, equipment, and tools. Any safety hazard found must be corrected before beginning the operation. If you are going to use equipment, you must be trained, authorized, and perform an inspection of the equipment before use. Contact your foreman before starting work if you need training, are unfamiliar or are uncomfortable performing a task.

Take Safety Home:
Being safe in your personal life is just as important as being safe at work. We must remain vigilant for hazards that we encounter daily. When was the last time you did a safety audit of your home to ensure the smoke detectors have new batteries? Inspected the fire extinguisher in your home (if you have one)? Replenished your first aid kit or took a CPR and first aid class?

The Unsafe Risk Taker

It's Thursday! And we are on Day 4 of our Safety Toolbox Talk, todays topic is:

Over the past few days, we have talked about being supportive & using communication to keep ourselves and our co-workers safe. Often we are on a job site and see someone working unsafe or see a hazard that we don't report because we don't feel like we should get involved. Sometimes we even feel rushed or unsupported so we cut a corner and take a risk because we just want to get the job completed faster or go home sooner. When it comes to safety in construction, “if you see something, say something” should be a rule of thumb for all workers, supervisors, visitors, and anyone who steps foot on a construction site. All workers should feel comfortable enough to speak up about safety violations they think may be occurring. If you see something that seems wrong, report it to your supervisor. When you report something that seems suspicious in the office or worksite you could potentially save a life. An informed and alert team plays a critical role in keeping the workplace safe. Safety is 100% teamwork. Take a look at the following video to find out how a USRT (Unsafe Risk Taker) affects the job site and morale. Don't be a USRT!

Today we hosted lunch at Mechanical group's Holy Cross Academy jobsite. We had some amazing pizza from Armand's Pizzeria. We also presented Ralph Murphy with the final 2022 Safety Award. Ralph had completed his OSHA 10, OSHA 30, and First Aid CPR on his own before Hottel began offering classes. Thank you Ralph for gaining the knowledge to keep yourself and others safe.

Don't forget we have two more days of Construction Safety Week to include more prizes and games. Daily Safety Week Toolbox talk will be sent out at 6am with a contest question sent out at 8am. On the conclusion of Safety Week, we will have one last contest. Stay tuned for more information and updates! Its a good one...

DAY 3 SAFETY TOPIC:

Safety is and always must remain a top value. Safety Week is the time to fill our safety “gas tanks” to last us the other 51 weeks of the year by giving us tools and new perspectives on safety while also retaining safety fundamentals. The fundamentals of safety are often a company’s cardinal rules, which are policies that would most likely result in death or serious physical harm if violated. Each of us has a duty to ourselves and our coworkers to be constantly aware of potentially hazardous conditions. Policies surrounding PPE, fall protection, confined space, and more are what keep us all safe and are the building blocks of a strong safety culture.

Hazard Recognition:
To construct the safety plan, we must recognize the hazards. Don’t wait for an incident to happen before you develop a good attitude towards safety. Like many personal attributes, it is easier to judge a safety attitude in others than in oneself. Focus on “state of mind/attitude” (rushing, frustration, fatigue, and complacency) either before or during a task. We all see errors that occur each day; we are human. When you find yourself in this state of mind, take action to prevent an error by:
● Self-Trigger – Recognize the state of mind that you are in and do something before you make a mistake.
● Analyze close calls/near misses.
● Look for patterns that increase the risk of injury with everyone around you.

Understand the Safety Plan:
While the contents of the safety plan will change from company to company and even from task to task, take the time to educate yourself to ensure you know the minimum requirements for each job before you start to stay safe. Some policies are in place due to lessons learned and may be modified from time to time. If an item is not well defined, take the time to ask your supervisor for clarification. Safety policies do not end with the job’s daily activities. Proper PPE is key to staying safe. Although it is the last line of defense, we must all remain committed to safety by supplying our crews with the equipment and gear that will keep them safe each day.

Be Willing to Ask for Help:
Sometimes to stay safe, we must accept that we can’t do a particular job by ourselves. Material handling and confined space entries are two instances where teamwork is necessary. We must rely on coworkers to “give us a hand” in times like these. Accidents are more likely to occur if we are reluctant to ask someone to assist with certain tasks. We all need help occasionally, so being too shy, too macho, or too experienced to ask for help isn’t worth an injury. After all, wouldn’t you be happy to give someone else a minute or two of your time to prevent an incident from occurring.

Appreciate Teamwork:
It takes everyone working together cooperatively in the workplace to stay safe. You can do a lot to maintain your safety, but you can’t be totally safe all by yourself. Safety is a team effort. Teamwork means taking the time to teach someone else a safer way to do the job or correct a condition you think might be a hazard. Cooperation of this sort is necessary to stay safe both in the workplace and in our everyday lives. The essence of staying safe is realizing that we are too valuable to leave our well-being to chance. We want to take care of ourselves and our teammates by performing our jobs safely. Whatever your job title is, stay committed to the safety fundamentals by preventing accidents through education, safe work practices, and teamwork.

Our Story

A family owned and operated company founded in 1945, focused on Mechanical services and specializing in Heating and Air Conditioning. When the company was founded, Harvey W. Hottel, Inc. began by designing and installing commercial heating and air conditioning systems for the government along with industrial facilities. As the popularity of air conditioning and the business grew, the company added a service repair division to maintain the air conditioning equipment that was being placed into operation. Over the last 65 years, the technologies may have changed and our company may have grown to be one of the largest commercial multi-discipline service, design and installation companies in the Mid-Atlantic but our values have remained the same
