Ways to Beat the Heat

With summertime comes summer heat, and there is no time like the present to prepare your crews for proper safety on the job site during the hottest months of the year.

Summer time temperatures are beginning to creep up on us, and before you know it, crews will be working in high and often dangerous temperatures.  For this reason, it is important to refresh your team on heat safety and get heat and preventative measures on their radar.

According to OSHA, every year dozens of workers die and thousands more become ill while working in extreme heat or humid conditions. Moreover, 40%+ of heat-related worker deaths occur in the construction industry, and conditions are not just limited to dehydration; there are a variety of heat illnesses and they can affect anyone, regardless of age or physical condition.

Under OSHA law, employers are responsible for providing workplaces free of known safety hazards, and extreme heat is considered a significant hazard.   In order to educate employers and the public, OSHA runs a campaign (Water.Rest.Shade) with the intention of keeping more workers safe under high heat conditions.  An employer should establish a complete heat illness prevention program that includes but is not limited to:

  • Providing workers with Water, Rest and Shade.
  • Having a plan for new or returning workers to gradually increase workloads and take more frequent breaks as they adjust or build their tolerance for working in high heat conditions.
  • Planning ahead for heat related illnesses, injuries and emergencies; making sure all team members are equally and properly trained to handle potential scenarios.
  • Have the site supervisor monitor workers for signs of heat related issues or illnesses.

To monitor the most common of symptoms for serious heat related illnesses, OSHA created a simple go-to reference guide covering symptoms and first aid measures that should be taken if a worker shows signs of a heat-related illness.  The full chart can be found by visiting their list of symptoms here.

While recognizing symptoms can be life-saving in certain situations, prevention is the best way to stay ahead of heat stroke and other illnesses.  The most direct way to do this is simple: Keep the work environment cooler.  Depending on the location of your workers, you may be able to incorporate only a few of the preventative measures, but every effort counts.  OSHA lists a variety of engineering controls that can reduce workers’ exposure to heat, and they are as follows:

  • Air conditioning (such as air-conditioned crane or construction equipment cabs, air conditioning in break rooms).
  • Increased general ventilation.
  • Cooling fans.
  • Local exhaust ventilation at points of high heat production or moisture (such as exhaust hoods in laundry rooms).
  • Reflective shields to redirect radiant heat.
  • Insulation of hot surfaces (such as furnace walls).
  • Elimination of steam leaks.

In addition to keeping the environment and conditions as cool as possible, employers should have a clear emergency plan in place, as well as ensure that drinking water is always replenished and close to the work area.  Employers may also want to consider rotating work/rest cycles with crews and scheduling heavier outdoor work for cooler times of the day (morning).  Individual team members can also rotate job functions and alternate their jobs to minimize over exposure to high heat conditions on any one individual.  As with any safety plan, first aid practices should be clearly understood and demonstrated by your team, and all personal protective equipment (coolmax clothing, wide brim hats, sunblock, etc.) should be required and provided by the employer.

With proper preparation and training, your crews can and should stay safe and hydrated on the job.  By showing your team that you are putting their health and safety first, you are not only fulfilling a legal obligation – You are showing your employees that you care about their well-being and are actively working to provide them with a safe and secure workplace.

Atlanta Swimming Pools Quarterly Report: Q1-2018

When you think of Atlanta homes, chances are that you do not think of homes with swimming pools.  In fact, according to Georgia Home Digest, “the most rare item in all of Georgia is a home with a swimming pool.”  That being stated, there is still some demand for swimming pools in the Metro Atlanta area, and HBW maintains a watchful eye on the latest permitting activity.

In the first quarter of this year, new swimming pool construction is off to a slower start in Atlanta.  With 418 pool starts, the Atlanta area has experienced a 4% year-over-year decrease in new pool permitting activity.  That being stated, the winter months are not the high season for swimming pool construction in Atlanta, so there is still plenty of time for pool builders to catch up and even surpass last year’s figures.

From a countywide perspective, Fulton took the lead for total starts.  With just over 100 swimming pool starts since the beginning of the year, Fulton County is already ahead of 2017 by 7%.  Other Atlanta areas/counties that are seeing higher levels of new pool construction include: Cobb County (56 permits, -2%), Gwinnett County (43 permits, +2%) and Cherokee County (42 permits, +2%).

Over the last five years, the Metro Atlanta area has experienced incremental and consistent increases in new pool construction, and while first quarter figures can provide clear data on construction activity at the start of the year, it is a finite view and not necessarily indicative of construction permit data to come.  HBW continuously monitors and collects data on the latest permitting activity, and with weekly construction and swimming pool permit reports readily available, new in-ground swimming pool construction patterns and trends will be identified and explored in future reviews and posts.

5 Tips for Choosing the Right Subcontractor

If you are a busy home builder, chances are you have worked with your fair share of subcontractors.  With a limited labor pool, it is easy to take on more work than capacity allows, and subcontractors are a great way to keep your business steady and projects flowing in a timely manner.  That being stated, not all subcontractors are created equal, and to make sure you have the right subcontractor for the job, there are a few necessary filters to run and a vetting process that must take place.  Here are five areas to consider when choosing your next subcontractor:

  1. Review – Just as you would with any new hire, review their expertise. This is not simply for the purpose of verifying their professional profile and experience – You will also need to take into account their specialties and how they relate to the project.  Additionally, verify their references, and don’t be afraid to ask the difficult questions from other contractors with whom they have worked to make sure they have produced quality work, on time and under budget.
  2. Check Capacity – As slick of an image and as tight of a list of expertise a subcontractor may have, they may or may not have the capacity to meet the size and demand of your job. What and how much equipment do they have available?  What size and how many crews are on hand?  How many jobs are they currently handling and will have running during your project?
  3. Safety First – Throughout the HBW Blog we touch upon the importance of safety, and the construction industry is where it is essential for safety to be a top priority. Citations and fines aside, the safety of your workers, your projects and your clients’ property must always be at the forefront of your daily operations, and for this reason, your subcontractor’s safety record must be at the forefront of your vetting process.  Check their OSHA records and their workers’ compensation information to review their Experience Modification Rate (EMR) and assess past cost of injuries and future chances of risk
  4. Insurance – While this would seem like a given, you can’t overlook confirming that the company is properly licensed, bonded and insured. An experienced and professional contractor should have this information readily available and provide the credentials upon request.
  5. Time – To keep your job and deliverables on time, you must adhere to an organized and detailed schedule; the same applies to the subcontractor you choose to complete the work. Prior to getting started, the subcontractor should provide a plan inclusive of action items, stages of the job and an appropriate timeline through completion.  Make sure your schedule provides a cushion for any unforeseen circumstances and that it is agreeable by all parties.

Whether you have a go-to crew already or you are just embarking on your search for a subcontractor partner, establishing realistic and clear expectations is paramount to your success.  To be successful, a business must have the room to grow, and when it comes to meeting client demands, a solid subcontractor can be a helpful ally in growing your team and company.

Texas Swimming Pool Construction Quarterly Report

HBW reviews the new swimming pool construction permit data for Texas in the first quarter of 2018.

Texas New Pool Permits by Area Q1 – 2017 vs. 2018

Overall, Texas is off to a healthy start for new pool construction.  In the first quarter of this year there were just over 1,550 new pool permits added to the HBW database, reflective of a 3% year-over-year decrease in new construction activity.  This drop is primarily due to the decline in pool construction in the Houston area where pool starts were down 30% in comparison to Q1-2017.  While the first quarter of the year is not the high season for pool builders, all other major metro areas reviewed (Dallas, Austin, San Antonio) are already ahead of last year’s figures.

The area experiencing the greatest increase in pool starts is San Antonio.  With just over 140 new pool permits in Q1-2018, the area is ahead of Q1-2017 by 13%.  Dallas also had a spike in new pool construction; with approximately 870 new pool construction permits on file with HBW, Dallas ranked #1 for pool starts having experienced a 9% year-over-year increase during the first quarter of this year.  The Austin area is also 9% ahead of last year having 183 new swimming pool permits on file for the three-month period.

When focusing on Texas counties that have the highest concentration of new pool permits in the first quarter, Tarrant County (Dallas) takes the top spot as it has already experienced a colossal 49% year-over-year increase in new pool construction, resulting in 270 new permits in Q1-2018.  Other counties that are carrying higher totals for pool starts include Harris (Houston) with 240 permits and Dallas with 199 permits.  Here is a closer look at the top five counties for total new swimming pool permits in Q1-2018:

Texas Home Building Report: Q1-2018

Texas New Permits by Area Q1 2017 vs. 2018

Texas has been hot out of the gates this year when it comes to new residential construction.  In the first quarter, there have been more than 17,900 housing starts on record which reflects an already 11% year-over-year increase.  Out of the four major metro areas reviewed (Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio), Houston continues to dominate for total new permits having 7,217 housing starts for the three-month period.  And while Dallas landed second highest for starts (6,344 new permits), it is leading the Lone Star State for growth as it has experienced a 23% year-over-year increase in new home construction since the start of the year.

The only metro area that hasn’t had a booming start in new home construction is Austin.  Austin ranked third for total housing starts having 2,612 new permits on file with HBW, and while this is reflective of a 6% decrease in new home construction in comparison to the same time last year, Q1-2018 is showing signs of improvement since the latter half of 2017.

Although San Antonio has the least amount of total starts (1,744 permits) in the first quarter, it continues to experience significant gains in the new residential construction market.  Over the last five years, the area has been maintaining a growth pattern, having more housing starts on file year-over-year, and as of Q1-2018 it is already ahead of last year by 16%.

When breaking down new residential construction by county, a couple of counties in Houston and Dallas led for total permits.  With just about a 2% lead over last year’s first quarter, Harris County (Houston) ranked #1 having nearly 3,640 housing starts in Q1-2018.  Next in line and side-by-side were two Dallas area counties… Collin County ranked second having 1,893 housing starts (+14%), and Tarrant County came in a close third with 1,811 housing starts (+29%).

Texas Top 5 Counties for Total New Permits – Q1 2017 vs. 2018

As far as higher value home construction (>$500k) is concerned, Dallas has and continues to rank #1, and with nearly 550 higher value housing starts in the first quarter of this year, the area is tracking to be ahead of last year in this value range.
