What's Happening at TEXOWhat's Happening at TEXO

Construction sites are ever-changing, bustling places. If the project is up to speed, you can find workmen from several different trades working in the same general vicinity, within close proximity of others. The type of project determines the sequences and overlaps of the various trade cycles. To minimize the risk of accidents, it is necessary to complete an evaluation of possible site hazards before workmen are dispatched to work on the project.

On-going assessments must be completed to determine what special tools, equipment, and personal protective equipment will be needed to accomplish the work. With a clear understanding as to what types of operations are going on around the jobsite and recognizing how some types of work will affect others, arrangements and adjustments can be made allowing the safe completion of all tasks.


Lean Construction challenges all project stakeholders to develop and apply better ways to manage the overall construction process. Unit 5: Lean Supply Chain and Assembly is a full-day course that introduces the lean strategies and tools used to deliver materials, equipment and prefabricated assemblies to the jobsite in a manner that facilitates flow.


This course covers the safety and health hazards associated with permit-required confined space entry.

Please join us Wednesday, October 3rd at 11:30 am for our Safety Forum. 
The TEXO Safety Committee will present “Electrical Safety in the Construction Industry”, to help identify and illustrate best-work practices that help mitigate electrical hazards from our projects. Construction projects pose many types of hazards for everyone associated with the construction process. Electricity is a key component of construction that poses some of the greatest hazards for all workers during the course of construction. With the complexity of electrical systems on the rise and new technology in safe practices being developed, management of these hazards are imperative to the protection of our workforce.
