Industrial and Commercial projects in Houston Creating Uptick in Jobs

 

The Houston market continues to diversify its economic portfolio with expected growth in the industrial sector as the city continues to expand into 2022. Land is the driver for large industrial companies seeking space as well as residential and multi-family developers.

Rise of E-commerce

The distribution industry is seeing a large uptick with companies like Amazon buying up large sq. footage distribution space. The city should continue to become a national distribution center due to the recent rise of e-commerce.

Expanding Construction

The inner city of Houston is the host of many mixed-use commercial projects as well as hotels, and large office tower buildings. Hewlett Packard also continues expansion of its large global HQ campus in Spring, TX. Healthcare is also a major driver of construction work, always looking to beef up its medical infrastructure all over the city.

Jobs for Electricians and Low Voltage Trades

All of these factors contribute to thousands of job opportunities for construction workers, specifically for electrical and low voltage contractors. Skilled trades continue to be in high demand and comparatively to other major cities nationwide, Houston’s cost of living is still beneath the nationwide average.

How Does Fatigue Affect Your Employees?

Business owners are always striving to make and keep their workplaces free of accidents. It’s a multi-faceted issue that can stem from faulty equipment, problems with the facility, or human error. But no matter the cause of a workplace accident, in most cases it could have been prevented.

One of the most overlooked reasons for accidents is employee fatigue. Exhausted workers can’t focus on the job at hand if they aren’t well rested. Lack of sleep weakens their cognitive function, which results in slow or incoherent decision making, and accidents become nearly inevitable.

Operating at a safe and productive level comes when your people are getting the proper amount of sleep regularly. They remain alert and engaged—and safer—when they are getting quality sleep every night. Conversely, fatigued employees are impaired. They are as likely to be injured on the job as a worker who arrives under the influence of alcohol. Consider these findings on how fatigue affects employees.

Both Intoxication and Fatigue Increase the Risk of a Workplace Accident

Everyone understands alcohol use leads to diminished mental and physical abilities. No business owner or manager would allow a worker to show up intoxicated. It would be a recipe for disaster in an already dangerous environment.

Yet, recent studies have shown the impairment that comes from too little sleep is equivalent to a 0.04 blood alcohol level. And the impairment begins with those getting fewer than nine hours of sleep. The less sleep they get, the higher the detrimental effect on their mental and physical faculties.

It’s vital to the well-being of their companies that employers become aware of the risks that a fatigued workforce poses, especially as it pertains to the increased risk of accidents. Adding to the potential problem are shift workers—those who work any shift outside of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. They are the most likely to get less than the optimal amount of sleep because the shift rotations can interfere with their circadian rhythms, making them vulnerable to drowsiness on the job, as well as to physical, mental and emotional health problems.

The Effects of Worker Fatigue

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), accident and injury rates climb 18% during evening shifts and 30% during night shifts when compared to day shifts. Working 12-hour days has been linked to a 37% increased risk of injury.

Decreased alertness from worker fatigue has been a contributing factor in the following industrial disasters:

Although human error cannot be eliminated, it can be reduced by addressing the root causes of fatigue, including poor sleep.

Strategies for Reducing Worker Fatigue

Each individual is affected differently by worker fatigue, so there aren’t any one-size-fits-all solutions. However, following these basic strategies can reduce employee fatigue:

  • Talk to your workers about developing good sleep habits;
  • Encourage your people to take occasional breaks and vary their tasks;
  • Provide adequate lighting;
  • Avoid extended working hours when possible; and
  • Provide anti-fatigue mats for those who stand and proper ergonomics for those who sit.

Electrician & Breaker Panel

Even as technologies change and become more complex, most residences and businesses still rely on the expertise of trade professionals to maintain the daily functions of their buildings. Electricians, for instance, are needed not only for the wiring and set up of new construction, but also for the upkeep of electrical systems as they age. Electrical staffing agencies provide and invaluable service both to electricians seeking work and to employers seeking electricians. Usually, such staffing services accept resumes and information about the applying electricians and help to match up the qualifications provided with those required by employers for specific jobs and projects. There is usually also an interview process, saving time for both parties who then do so just once instead of multiple times. The service is generally free to the individual electricians, and it is the staff-seekers who usually pay the staffing agency for allocating their workers. In some cases, the electrician will even be paid by the staffing agency instead of directly by the business they end up laboring for.

Staffing services are particularly useful to certified electricians because their work tends to be on a short-term, even one-time basis unlike many other workers who find their work recurring. In fact, if an electrician has done his or her job and done it well, they hopefully will never need to do it again. Thus, electricians will be in a constant search for the next job. Those who create a good report with a staffing agency will have a more streamlined, less pressured experience finding a good amount of labor. Also, because electrical work is considered a tradesman’s craft, electricians can depend on the negotiation of a fair wage for the job done.

While some staffing agencies specialize in only electrical job placement, there are also many companies and sites that do broader construction and trade placement as well. These agencies that have a wider scope usually fold electrical work into their larger umbrella of construction and trade. Specialized staffing services may be beneficial because they tend to be specific and knowledgeable of the specific trade they place in, and may appear more adept and trustworthy because of that specificity. However, larger projects that require more than one specialty will often save time and money by going through a single company for all of their staff instead of contacting multiple types of agencies. Being able to hire carpenters, plumbers, project managers, electricians etc. all at once and all through the same service saves the employer time, confusion and money. In this way, multidisciplinary staffing companies may be more beneficial to job seekers and employers alike. Larger projects may need to hire more workers, upping the chances of hire and income to electricians represented by the staffing agencies they use. Also if a company has had success in the past hiring one type of worker through an agency, for instance, carpenters, they are more likely to hire other sorts of workers, (like electricians), through the same agency.
