Hard Hats with Heart | Construction & the American Heart Association
Hard Hats with Heart is an American Heart Association initiative for highlighting the importance of heart health in the construction industry. More than a fundraiser, this movement brings project owners, general contractors, trade partners, suppliers, unions, health care and business executives together to bring awareness to cardiovascular disease for building healthier communities.
In preparation for local Hard Hats for Heart events and campaigns, we worked with Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin to promote heart health in the construction industry. The video baselines risk factors contributing to the current situation and how we can improve to be better.
C.D. Smith Construction's Director of Safety, Joe Pausha, speaks to the importance of health and safety. He talks about daily safety habits and preparations, learning opportunities, lunch-and-learns and ensuring every team member has the skill set to work safely. Joe elaborates on how seriously we take the safety and health of our team in saying, "Some of the lunch-and-learn training includes CPR, first aid, AED and other wellness activities that you can take home for you and your family."
Mercedes Tucker joined C.D. Smith's Safety Committee in 2019. She unexpectedly had the opportunity to put her CPR training to use when dining out one evening. "It's lifesaving and has made a huge impact on my life to have that opportunity to save someone else." Mercedes Tucker, Marketing and Research Specialist
Health and safety training is invaluable in construction and all industries. Whether in the community or on the jobsite, we support Hard Hats with Heart!
