October Brings Awareness to Fire Prevention and Hearing Protection

October is a month filled with valuable safety messages for our industry and beyond.

National Protect Your Hearing Month: Wolverton’s Subsurface Utility Engineering teams know how important hearing protection is while out in the field, including when digging test holes for utility relocation. Remember to wear earplugs when around compressed air/vacuum units and other noise beyond the typical traffic.

For Fire Prevention Month, our friends at American Fire have an important safety reminder: “[It’s] the perfect time of year to consider industrial fire prevention too! Did you know there are 5 major causes of industrial fires and explosions? The most common causes are combustible dust, hot work, flammable liquid and gasses, equipment and machinery, and electrical hazards. Please take time to verify your fire systems are inspected and your industrial spaces are hazard-free.”
