Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Or at least two of these symptoms:

Chills (shaking related to chills)
Sore throat
New loss of taste or smell
Muscle pain

If employees develop the following emergency warnings signs while at work, Northridge encourages them to consult their medical provider:

Trouble breathing
Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
New confusion or inability to arouse
Bluish lips or face

This list is not all-inclusive. If any other severe or concerning symptoms appear, we encourage our employees to consult their medical provider. We ask that employees notify their provider that they might be experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

If employees are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms at work, we ask that they exit the building and isolate themselves in their vehicle.
In addition Northridge is minimizing exposure by:

Having one designated driver for any company vehicle.
Mandating that employees practice social distancing in the office.
Having hand sanitizer available in the company bathrooms and vehicles. Employees are to clean their work area before and after use.
Any employees that are able to work from home are encouraged to do so.
All employees working on site will be supplied with hand sanitizer. Employees are also encouraged to wash their hands after touching any common surface, tool or piece of equipment.
Having designated employees cleaning and sanitizing surfaces such as door handles, cabinets, drawers, chairs and tables throughout the day.
Employees are not permitted to share phones.

Northridge Takes Third Place In Spin For Kids

Northridge participated in the Spin for Kids charity event for its 4th year in a row. More than $177,000 was raised by the community to be disbursed to children with special needs in the region. This year Northridge had two teams participate in the event. Team #32 took third place in the Amateur Team Miles cycling 110.5 miles in 160 minutes.

Spin For Kids: Northridge Construction Works To Help Special Needs Children

Families with children who have special needs often face lifelong medical bills and expenses. Children grow and change very quickly, and the equipment they need must change with them. Insurance does not always cover these costs; this is where Spin For Kids comes in. All money raised by Spin For Kids is disbursed to qualifying families to help them obtain the equipment and services they need. Northridge is excited to assist these families by participating and fundraising for this event.

Help us to make a difference!

National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down

The 4th Annual National Fall Prevention Safety Stand-Down is held on May 8 through the 12, 2017.   OSHA will be conducting a national safety stand down for construction in honor of all who have fallen to their death and to educate as many construction workers as possible about the hazards and precautions that can be taken.

The purpose of the National Fall Prevention Stand-Down is to raise awareness of preventing fall hazards in construction. Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 350 of the 937 construction fatalities recorded in 2015.  Those deaths were preventable.

What is a Safety Stand-Down?

A Safety Stand-Down is an event for companies to talk directly to workers about safety, this year we are focusing on “Fall Hazards” and to reinforce the importance of “Fall Prevention.”  Northridge will observe a pause during the workday for topical discussions, safety demonstrations, and training in hazard recognition and fall prevention. This will allow for time to talk about hazards, protective methods and the company’s safety policies, goals and expectations.
