Pipeline Sewer Construction Companies

Pipeline construction companies have large responsibilities to developers, general contractors, engineers, public utility agencies and to the general public. In pipeline construction, to construct is to install. From fresh running potable water to draining storm water drainage systems, modern-day society as we now know it simply would not be the same without critical pipeline work to make it all happen. Like trucking is to logistics, pipelines are critical to our industrialized living. This is where pipeline construction companies come into play.

A quality wet utility pipeline construction company, for example, installs wet utility pipeline systems so that they function correctly, as planned, meeting the needs of growing industrialized societies. Civil Engineers draw sewer, water and storm drainage pipeline routing plans that pipeline construction companies must follow to ensure properly working systems. These systems designed by Civil Engineers often involve multiple mathematical computations to ensure pipeline designs work and meet the specific needs of any given community, whether residential, commercial, industrial or institutional.

Construction Safety

Construction safety is a hot topic for the construction industry literally now that summer is officially here and the weather is warming up to three digit temperatures in some parts of California. Construction companies carry large responsibilities as employers to provide adequate training in preventing workplace illness and injury - specifically heat illness. Earlier this year, the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) set initiatives to educate workers and their employers about the hazards of working outdoors in heat and how to prevent heat-related illnesses.

Heat illness is a common hazard for construction workers who typically work outdoors. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) data, 230 heat-related deaths have occurred from 2003 - 2009 with 81 (40%) of these fatalities in the construction industry. Over that same time period, 15,370 heat-related injuries/illnesses requiring days away from work have occurred with 4,110 (27%) of these injuries/illnesses in the construction industry.
