Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) June 06, 2014
KPOST Company Safety Manager and Compliance Safety and Health Official, Luciano Perez was recently recognized for his Outstanding Services as the TEXO Chairman of the Board for the Latino Safety Committee & Forum.
Perez has a total of twenty-one years of experience in the construction industry, ten of which were spent with the KPOST family. Perez is a certified Safety & Health Official, NRCA - CERTA Program Trainer, and Safety Health and Environmental Professional (SHEP).
“We are honored to receive this award. It is nice to be recognized for KPOST’s focus on safety,” said Luciano Perez. “Safety is an ongoing effort here and particularly in the summer months as we gear up for high heat.”
The award could not come at a better time for KPOST as the temperatures rise and so do the health risks for those exposed to it. It is vital for all of those working in the heat to take safety precautions, the first of which is to educate employees.
According to Jayne Williams, KPOST’s CFO and Safety Officer, “We need to make safety personal to our employees. I’m not asking them to adhere to the policies because I’m mean. I want them to be safe and go home at night. It’s very important our employees know why we do this for them.”
Luciano Perez ensures that every week the team is reminded of the preparations and precautions to take while working in the heat. These include:
- Wear long sleeve shirts in a light color.
- Apply sunscreen regularly.
- Drink two cups of water every 15 to 20 minutes to stay hydrated.
- Steer clear of energy drinks, caffeinated beverages, colas and alcohol, which can increase chances of dehydration.
More safety tips and information about preparing employees for the summer heat is available via the Latest News section of the KPOST company website.
