Employee Training a Priority

Greetings from the Arctic!  Ok, it really isn't the Arctic but it sure feels like it here in Ohio. It was 1 degree below zero this morning, warming up from a frigid 17 below yesterday at this time. However, the sun is shining and the snow is a beautiful sparkling white. And spring will arrive soon (I hope!)

I have been remiss on posting about the great training our staff has attended over the last few months.  It is very exciting how we are always learning new things to make sure we are offering the best of our trade to our customers. In August our entire staff, except our admin, attended various training sessions at the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) Annual Conference held right in our back yard in Columbus, Ohio. What a great opportunity!  Two of us attended the Rocky Geans' Concrete Construction Business School. This training had two information packed days of everything to do with operating a concrete construction business, from marketing and sales to estimating and job costing and everything in between.  The crewleaders of our business attended "Construction Leadership from A to Z", while the rest of the crews attended seminars on controlling cracking and placing concrete in bad weather. All agreed it was worthwhile training and fun to interact with other concrete professionals.

Border StampSafety training is a must in the industry and within our company. We have been trained on a variety of topics this past year including, but not limited to, general safety awareness, hearing conservation, the new Globally Harmonized System and Hazardous Chemicals, operating a fire extinguisher, personal protective equipment, CPR/AED and more.

Most recently, two of our guys attended training at Deco-Crete Supply in Columbus, OH on Vertical and Decorative Overlays.  The guys loved the training and are very excited about what they learned. We now have the ability and skills to overlay flatwork (on the ground) and also on the vertical (on a wall.)  It can be done in a regular broom finish, a knock off finish, stamped, stenciled, or hand carved. And with the freezing temperatures outside, they have been able to use their skills to overlay two walls and the floor in our conference room.  In the photos you can see that they overlayed and stamped the lower section of our conference room in a mountain dry stack pattern and also overlayed, stamped and hand carved the column. All of it was stained and sealed. The floor is the next project with a decorative overlay and an epoxy finish. You'll have to visit our office to see how it turns out!

These finishes would be great in a new or existing basement or around a fireplace. Have you considered cultured stone? We can create the same look with vertical overlays. We'd love to help create your dream home or even your ideal man cave. The possibilities are endless! Do you have an idea for  using decorative overlays? Share them with us!

Merry Christmas Greetings

We wish you a merry Christmas,
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy New Year!

From all of us at Yoder Concrete Construction, LLC

If you are searching for a gift that keeps on giving, I recommend giving a goat (or a pig, or a flock of geese.)  Heifer International is an organization that is fighting to end world hunger by teaching families to raise animals that will keep providing for them on an ongoing basis. They receive life sustaining products, such as milk or eggs, and they agree to pass on an offspring to another person in need. 

Remember Christ's birth this Christmas season. Be Blessed!

CPR/AED training completed

On August 20th, two of our employees, Josh Legge and Richard Smith, successfully completed a CPR training course offered by the Macochee Joint Ambulance District at the Green Hills Community in West Liberty.  Yoder Concrete Construction encouraged its employees to attend this life saving training right in our community by offering to pay for the course and also by paying their regular wages for the time spent in training. These two employees offered to go, and spoke very highly of the training they received. They also requested to attend the First Aid course offered later this month. 

Thank you to our employees to attending this potentially life saving class, not only for their fellow employees, but also for their family members and members of the community.
