Immigrants make up about 41 percent of the construction trades in Texas, or close to twice the share of immigrants in the U.S. construction labor force, making this region heavily dependent on foreign-born tradesmen.


The problem is "significant and widespread," and with projects being delayed and construction costs rising, the "time to act is now," AGC and Autodesk officials said.

Failure to Lockout, Blockout, Tagout machinery and equipment before working on it is a major cause of serious injury. Lockout, Blockout means that any energy source – whether electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, compressed air, or any other source that might cause unexpected movement – must be disengaged or blocked, and electrical sources must be de-energized and “locked” or positively sealed in the OFF position. Even a locked-out machine may not be safe if there are parts of the machine that are not “blocked” to prevent inadvertent movement.
