Whether you’re preparing a Thanksgiving feast or tossing the football in the backyard, keep these tips in mind to avoid an unwanted trip to the emergency room.
Cuts and lacerations: Because the production of a large holiday meal often calls for the all-hands-on-deck approach, it often brings novices into the kitchen. It should be no surprise, then, that emergency departments often treat cuts and lacerations from people using knives and other sharp implements to help prepare a holiday meal. Take a moment to ensure that anyone offering to assist in the kitchen is familiar with the safe use of the tools they are going to be using.
Burns: Burns of the hands and arms are another common holiday occurrence. Novices may attempt to navigate oversized broiler pans into ovens, or large portions may boil over their containers. Be sure to use protective oven mitts that comfortably cover and protect all sides of the hand when reaching into the oven. Avoid wearing loose clothing that could get caught while moving hot foods, causing a spill or even causing you to catch on fire if it comes in contact with a burner.
Food poisoning: Improperly preparing food, or storing and transporting it at the wrong temperature, allows bacteria to thrive. The resulting cases of foodborne illness can cause people to seek out emergency treatment. While these cases of “food poisoning” are often mild and not life-threatening, they can certainly put a damper on holiday celebrations.
Falls: The Thanksgiving holiday commonly marks the beginning of a busier holiday season and is often used for more than just shopping. People are injured falling off roofs, ladders or trees while attempting to place lights and other decorations. Have a spotter when using a ladder and know your limits.
Sports injuries: Friendly competition and family events often go hand-in-hand. But each pick-up football game and driveway basketball showdown brings a risk of ankle sprains, facial lacerations from a stray elbow, and even broken bones and concussions. Use proper equipment and be sure you have a space clear of obstructions that could cause trips and falls. With simple planning, you can ensure your backyard sporting event doesn’t turn into a trip to the emergency room.
Alcohol: Alcohol is often a part of holiday celebrations. Avoid drinking and driving, as each drink impacts your ability to safely operate a vehicle. Designate a driver and get home safely. Also, bear in mind that alcohol makes almost all the above activities even riskier.
HAVE A HAPPY AND SAFE THANKSGIVING!

This past weekend we were fortunate enough to participate in the 2020 Birdies for Boys and Girls Golf Tournament hosted by Northern Star Generation. It was an excellent opportunity for us to give back to the local community as the proceeds from the tournament go to the Boys and Girls Club of Central Florida. We had an excellent time at the event, and look forward to participating again next year.
We completed the month of October continuing on our pace of a 0.00 TRIR for the year. We have zero OSHA-recordable injuries this year and continue to be proactive in identifying potential hazards. Great job by our HSE Director, Shannon Scruggs, and each one of our Project Management teams for engraining our safety culture throughout the teams working at site. Nice job everybody!
I hope everyone was able to get out and vote today. A little election day history for your reading enjoyment:
Why a Tuesday in November? The answer stems from the agrarian makeup of 19th-century America. In the 1800s, most citizens worked as farmers and lived far from their polling place. Since people often traveled at least a day to vote, lawmakers needed to allow a two-day window for Election Day. Weekends were impractical, since most people spent Sundays in church, and Wednesday was market day for farmers.
With this in mind, Tuesday was selected as the first and most convenient day of the week to hold elections. Farm culture also explains why Election Day always falls in November. Spring and early summer elections were thought to interfere with the planting season, and late summer and early fall elections overlapped with the harvest. That left the late fall month of November—after the harvest was complete, but before the arrival of harsh winter weather—as the best choice.
