Barbco Inc. President and National Utility Contractors Association (NUCA) Board of Directors member David M. Barbera recently presented the NUCA Toolbox Talk titled “Identifying & Protecting Against the Coronavirus (COVID-19)” to his manufacturing supervisors. The team at Barbco converted a warehouse space into an ad hoc meeting room in order to allow for social distancing protocols.
Topics presented included Signs of the Virus, How the Virus is Spread, How Severe is this Virus, and How to Protect yourself and your family from this virus. Barbco has been very proactive in fighting the virus and keeping the Barbco employees, or as we like to call ourselves, The Barbco Pride, safe from the virus. Barbco has met and exceeded all recommended CDC protocols during this pandemic.
NUCA is the National Utility Contractors Association — the leading trade association working solely for the utility construction and excavation industry in the United States was formed in 1964. NUCA’s nationwide network of state/regional Chapters and member companies represent utility contractors, excavators, suppliers, manufacturers, and other providers in the water, sewer, gas, electric, treatment plant, telecommunications, and excavation industries.
NUCA’s core purpose is to improve the operational proficiency and financial performance of its member companies by providing services that focus on shared industry issues. NUCA also works to secure more funding for America’s aging underground infrastructure. Founded in 1964, NUCA is the driving force for improving conditions in the utility construction and excavation industry, for both open-cut and trenchless contractors.
