It’s National Work Zone Awareness Week!

“Drive Safe” 

Drivers, this one’s for you: give the work zone your undivided attention.  When you’re driving past roadway construction, slow down and follow all posted sign’s directions.  Don’t stress!  It’s important to stay as calm as you are alert.

“Work Safe” 

Construction crews know that they play a crucial role in maintaining workplace safety.  They’re committed to developing new technologies to take workers out of dangerous situations as well as dedicating every action they make to the safety of all.

“Save Lives” 

Together, we can realize the ultimate goal of zero deaths on our roads and in our work zones.

April is Stress Awareness Month

Stress Awareness Month has been recognized every April since 1992, but this year it seems particularly important.  Learning to cope with our stress and finding healthy ways to deal with these situations can go a long way in living a healthy and positive life.  Long-term stress can prove to be more than just a mental issue.  From headaches to stomach disorders to depression – even very serious issues like stroke and heart disease can come as a result of stress.

The CDC provides some basic ideas to help you cope with stress…

  • Take care of yourself – eat healthy, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, give yourself a break if you feel stressed.
  • Discuss your problems with a parent, friend or another trusted source.
  • Avoid drugs and alcohol.
  • Recognize when you need more help – know when to talk to a psychologist, social worker or counselor if things continue.
