As one of the country’s largest construction firms began working for a prominent tech company, TRANSEARCH was selected to recruit and hire a safety officer who would help steward the relationship.  The scope of construction work spanned multiple states across the U.S., and encompassed massive, complex project sites with hundreds of personnel each.  Not only is safety considered a core value of this construction firm, their customer holds safety in the same high regard.  As such, a proven safety leader was required who could implement best-in-class practices in the field, improve programmatic elements throughout the organization, and cultivate a highly engaged, productive relationship with the customer.

On August 7th, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its July 2015 monthly findings, and the trend looks very positive for employment in construction and elsewhere in the economy. While there are still some areas of concern with diversity employment and with industries such as Mining, Oil & Gas (above 8%) – construction along with manufacturing and the rest of the economy seem to be back to where they were in 2009.
