Congratulations to our Employee of the Month for July; Fernando Arenas! Fernando is a Land Surveyor at Catsurveys and was nominated by his colleagues for his positive attitude and professionalism.
Land surveyors are much more than people in high-vis jackets standing with a total station. They precisely measure land, building a map of an area, ensuring every detail is accurate.
Being a land surveyor requires a range of expertise from mathematics to technology. Working in an array of locations and environments means that every day is different in this profession. One day they may be stomping through a muddy field, the following day surveying underground tunnels or spending time at a substation.
Shocking statistics show that suicide kills more people in the construction industry than falls from height.
Ensuring that health and safety procedures are followed on a construction site is usually the top priority – but there is only so much protection that PPE and knowledge can provide. Not to mention, that protection is only physical. What about ‘mental protection’? Surely, it is only right that mental health and safety is given the same level of importance and investment as other hazards on site.
