Highlights From Med-Tex Services, Inc. and General Building Contractors Association’s “Water. Rest. Shade.” Campaign

  Filed under: News

On Tuesday, August 13, 2019, Med-Tex Services, Inc. and GBCA joined forces to promote OSHA’s “Water. Rest. Shade.” Campaign. We visited several job sites to hand out hydration, sunscreen and sun protection gear to workers. 6ABC was on hand for the event and produced an awesome Facebook Live video about worker safety in hot conditions. Hosted by Gina Gannon, the video was filmed at Bittenbender Construction’s LOVE Park Welcome Center Renovation Project. The video documented part of our efforts to support OSHA’s “Water. Rest. Shade.” Campaign, which promotes awareness about heat and sun-related risks and injuries.

Gina interviewed several people about the importance of heat awareness and safety in construction:

  • Lauren Hanan, General Building Contractors Association
  • Dennis Dougherty, Med-Tex Services, Inc.
  • Jenni Ann Williams, Bittenbender Construction, LP
  • Art Denoncour, Bittenbender Construction, LP

This video was co-produced as part of GBCA’s 2019 partnership with 6ABC, and was one stop in GBCA’s and Med-Tex Services, Inc.’s “Water. Rest. Shade.” Campaign. Thank you to the following members for participating in our campaign!
