Before you start tossing salt over your shoulder or avoiding ladders and black cats on your way to the job site, let's talk about how #FridayThe13th looks in the construction industry.
🐱 Black Cats: Traditionally seen as a sign of bad luck, but in construction, they’re just another cog in the machine, especially if you're operating a Cat® bulldozer.
🪜 Walking Under Ladders: On a construction site, this isn't superstition; it's an OSHA violation! Safety first, people.
🔩 Screws Loose: Finding one isn't bad luck; it's a reminder to always double-check your work.
👷♀️ Hard Hats: Worn to protect against falling objects, not to ward off bad spirits, although it wouldn't hurt to have both.
📏 Measure Twice, Cut Once: This golden rule is followed every day, not just on Friday the 13th. Unless you want to invoke the wrath of the Project Manager (a fate scarier than any superstition).
🛑 Red Flags: In construction, these signal potential safety hazards or project risks, not impending doom (well, maybe just a little).
So, this Friday the 13th, instead of fretting about superstitions, let's focus on what really matters in our industry: building amazing structures, and doing it safely and efficiently!
Happy Building! 🏗️👷♂️👷♀️
