Happy National Construction Day
By Rob BlackstienConstruction
Let's celebrate the industry and all its achievements.
Wednesday November 3 marked National Construction Day in Canada, so On-Site thought we’d simply let the industry speak for itself. Here are some of the highlights we found on social media to mark the occasion.
True to its mission, 4S Consulting had construction workers’ safety on its mind:
Hard hats, safety boots, harnesses, safety glasses! Yes, we are talking about our champion construction workers. Safey salutes the spirit and passion of our construction workers to keep us moving forward. Wishing them a Happy National Construction Day! #nationalconstructionday pic.twitter.com/O4gpcgDalBAdvertisement
