UALR Southern Tail Walk Through

UALR Southern Tail Walk Through

On Wednesday, East Harding Construction hosted a walk through of one of our job sites for the UALR intro to construction class. The students tour one jobsite each week to learn about the materials and methods used on commercial building sites.

 

 
The East Harding Construction site they toured was Southern Tail Brewing in Little Rock. This job site was chosen due to its unique construction method using a combination of metal building, wood framing and conventional steel. Jack Whitley, Project Manager, Patrick Booth, Sr. Site Superintendent and Dashaun Hammond, Site Superintendent, guided the students through each section of the build, answered questions and offered insites into a career in construction. Mitzi Skinner, Health & Safety Director was also onsite to discuss the importance of safety on a jobsite.
 

 

East Harding Construction is proud to be a JOC for the University of Arkansas System and to support the future of construction through education and interactive experiences such as this jobsite tour.

In the spirit of Halloween, each Chapter wore costumes. Our Chapter dressed as OSHA Inspectors and won the Scariest Costume Contest.

Boom Lift Refresher Course

Boom Lift Refresher Course

As safety is always at the forefront of everything we do here at East Harding Construction, our superintendents spent time refreshing their Boom Lift skills on Friday. Brandon Meadows & Tom Pierson of Sunbelt Rentals spoke about the responsibilities and safe operation of Boom Lifts including Pre-start inspections; Workplace inspections; Hazards involved in operating; and Preventing accidents in the workplace. Our superintendents received hands-on operation training on actual equipment, which is invaluable.

Special thanks to the Sunbelt team for helping us be safe!
