Safety Culture

Since the nineteenth century, trade unions and professional organizations have played an influential role in establishing standards and laws that protect and improve the well-being of workers around the world. Workplace safety and well-being initiatives have come a long way, but there is still a great deal of work to be done.

Cold Weather Construction

Across North America, cargo shorts, Capri pants and flip-flops are relegated to the back of the closet, with parkas, sweaters and boots taking their place. And just as we winterize our bodies and our cars with warm clothes and snow tires, we do much the same to our houses in preparation for the cold months ahead, from cleaning out gutters to sealing cracks around windows and doors, wrapping pipes with insulation, replacing the furnace filter, draining water from the outside faucet and – if there is a fireplace or woodstove – stocking up on firewood. And those who fail to prepare often pay the price with drafts and high heating costs or, even worse, mould, moisture damage or frozen pipes.
