Michigan Ordered to Pay $87 Million to Replace Flint's Water Lines

Michigan to replace lead contaminated water lines in Flint by 2020.
Michigan has been ordered to replace Flint's lead contaminated water lines by 2020, according to the Wall Street Journal. The state will use $87 million dollars in state and federal funds to dig up service lines at roughly 18,000 homes in Flint, Michigan and replace lines made of lead and galvanized steel. The agreement calls for the state to replace lines to 6,000 homes by January 2018. An additional $10 million will be kept in reserve.

"This hard-fought victory means safer water for Flint,” Dimple Chaudhary, a senior attorney with plaintiff group Natural Resources Defense Council, said in a statement. “For the first time, there will be an enforceable commitment to get the lead pipes out of the ground. The people of Flint are owed at least this much.”

Because of the high lead levels, the state created nine bottled water pick-up sites, which it can begin to close starting in May 2017 if demand drops due to new water lines.

While lead in drinking water is of chief concern for Michigan, lead in construction is also a major concern for the state. If you are a contractor and need to attain a lead paint certification for lead abatement, inspection, risk assessment, or renovation (RRP) please visit Zack Academy

Residential Remodelers in Hot Demand, Making Nearly 6 Figures

With no degree required and a high demand for labor,
remodeling professions are a great avenue
of employment.

Making nearly six figures without a college degree might sound impossible - until one considers the remodeling industry. According to data from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), remodelers had an average net profit margin of 5.3% or $95,000 in 2015.

Residential remodelers - that is is anyone who carries out structural alterations to an existing home, such as plumbers or contractors - reported an average of $1.8 million in revenue for 2015. Although 71.1% of revenue went to labor and material costs and another 23.6% went to operating expenses, many remodelers seemed able to make a decent living.

This report comes in stark contrast to U.S. education statistics: 44.2 million Americans have student loans with about 11.2% of those loans going into delinquency. Moreover, only 60% of first-time, full-time students complete their bachelor's degree.

While remodeling professions can involve hard work and long hours, remodelers are not saddled with college debt. Many continuing education programs are available for remodelers who would like to specialize, and most classes only take a few days to complete. This puts remodelers in control of their value - each investment in their trade education translates to profit.

Besides saving time and money, remodeling professions are in high demand - the industry laments labor availability as one of its biggest challenges. It is worth noting that NAHB does not collect data on remodeling profits yearly; the last time that the remodeling data was analyzed in 2011, profits were only at 3.0%. However, the economy in general wasn't in great shape in 2011. The fluctuation of demand might be something to consider for trade work. However, remodeling is still an employment avenue worth exploring. There will always be a need for remodeling and renovations in residential homes. 

To learn more about remodeling and trade education, check out Zack Academy's courses. From contracting to construction and asbestos to lead, Zack Academy's trade courses can enhance your remodeling skill set.

Indiana Highway Expecting Construction Boom this Month

Indiana industry workers can expect to see several highway
projects rolled out this spring; INDO will expand 
Interstate 64, 65 and Indiana Toll Road.

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) will undertake several highway projects this spring. The projects include expansions on Interstate 94, Interstate 65, the Indiana Toll Road and bridge replacements on Interstate 65.

The widening of Interstate 65 should begin mid March. The project will add a third northbound lane and a third southbound lane to the infrastructure. By transforming the outside shoulders into travel lanes, INDOT hopes to accommodate the state's traffic volume. The 12-mile project will be executed by Walsh Construction Co. II and Parsons Transportation Group for $62.1 million.

Additionally, I-65's bridges will be replaced. Further north of I-65, INDOT will begin remediating a stretch of concrete. This project will include patching spots along the highway, installing dowel rods to support areas of strain, and seal bridge joints.

Interstate 94 will receive concrete pavement restoration, bridge deck replacement and bridge painting. The $45 million "Restore 94" project will also include drainage improvements to enhance traffic and safety along state lines.

Finally, The Indiana Toll Road's $200 million project will repave 73 miles and rehabilitate 53 bridges. The project will also implement fiber optic cable to support transportation systems which communicate traffic and safety-related information along the road

“With the weather unseasonably warm and cooperating with us, we are very excited to get an early start on the 80/90 PUSH Project’s improvements this year," Nic Barr, chief executive officer for the Indiana Toll Road Concession Co, said in a recent press release.

Overall, industry workers in the region can expect the projects to continue for at least another two years. This uptick in activity seems like a promising start to construction season.

OSHA Names 10 Most Cited Safety and Health Violations


OSHA administrators stress the injuries sustained from 
the top 10 cited violations in 2016 were completely preventable-
If workers had proper education.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released a list of the 10 most frequently cited safety and health violations in 2016. The report was compiled from more than 32,000 inspections of workplaces by federal OSHA staff.

According to Thomas Glassi, the director of enforcement programs for OSHA, more than 4,500 workers are killed on the job every year and about three million workers are injured.

"If all employers simply corrected the top 10 hazards, we are confident the number of deaths, amputations and hospitalizations would drastically decline," Thomas Glassi said in a recent press release.

The top 10 most cited violations include:
  • Fall Protection: Falls are among the leading causes of worker deaths, especially in construction. Fall protection measures such as ladder and scaffold safety protections could prevent injuries. 
  • Respiratory protection: Improper or inadequate respiratory protection can cause illness or death resulting from respired asbestos, silica or other toxic substances present on job sites. 
  • Lockout/tagout: The lockout or tagout features on certain machinery can be negligently handled causing machinery to suddenly start up when being repaired. Improper lockout/tagout safety can cause appendages to get stuck in machinery, leading to gruesome injuries. 
  • Powered industrial trucks: According to the report, a high number of fatalities are due to improper forklift safety. 
Occupational safety violations can lead to reduced morale, higher project costs, lower productivity and even fatalities. However, the report found that many employers are providing adequate safety training. In fact, Glassi noted that the top 10 rarely changes - year after year, workers are harmed in the same types of hazards.

"We urge employers to go beyond the minimal requirements to create a culture of safety at work, which has been shown to reduce costs, raise productivity and improve morale," Glassi said in a recent press release.

To read the full list and rankings of the top 10 most cited violations for 2016, visit the official report from OSHA. To learn more about construction and industry safety, visit Zack Academy.

Venues Around the World Embrace LEED

The USGBC's LEED in Motion: Venues showcases the impact
of eco-conscious design. Above: The Virginia Beach Convention Center is
LEED Gold Certified; the facility reduced electricity consumption by 6% - an
equivalent to taking 30 homes off the grid for a year. 
Source

This month, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) published an interactive newsletter on green building principles applied to venues. LEED In Motion: Venues highlights sports complexes, convention centers, community centers and concert halls around the world pursuing LEED certification. Through innovative design, these venues reduce waste and environmental impact.

Part of the focus on LEED certified venues is due to the impact venues have in communities. Environmentally, venues can be a huge source of waste due to the billions of visitors busy venues can see annually. According to the article, Waste Management estimated that the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL sport complexes generate a combined 35,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide; the convention and trade show industry contributes and estimated 60,000 tons of garbage each year. Even small steps in minimizing waste from public facilities can have an impact on environmental health.

One such venue focused on LEED principles is the Allstream Centre in Toronto, Canada. The convention center is Canada's first LEED Silver certified conference center, and generates 100% of its power from renewable resources. The center, which attracts more than 5 million visitors each year, also has a 30-story wind turbine that produces 1 million kilowatt hours of clean energy per year.

Another building, the Los Angeles Convention Center, became the largest convention center in the US to achieve LEED Gold recertification. The center has saves 470,000 gallons of water each year through water efficiency projects such as their waterless urinals, low-flow toilets and sprawling lawn outfitted with drought-tolerant, ecologically-sensible vegetation.

LEED certified venues also seek to create multi-use facilities. Beyond reducing waste, multi-use facilities reduce cost. For example, the former Beijing Olympic Village was part of a $44 billion investment to host the 2008 Summer Olympics. Now, the LEED gold certified village is a residential area with apartments, restaurants, a library and a gym. Through innovative stormwater treatment and collection planning, the complex has been able to reduce water use by 40%.

Indeed, the economic development from LEED certified venues is as attractive as the environmental sustainability. Through reduced operation costs, businesses are saving money; the international demand for LEED projects is part of the 3.3 million jobs in green construction projected for 2018.

"Our ultimate goal is to lead by example in changing the perception that venues are not environmentally conscious while inspiring sustainable practice in our community," Jackie Ventura, Operations Coordinator of the Miami HEAT, said in the newsletter. The Miami Heat's home stadium became the first NBA facility to earn a LEED Building Operations and Maintenance certification, as well as the first sports facility in the world to earn a LEED Gold recertification.

LEED certified venues are an exciting avenue of sustainability. More than a design trend, environmentally conscious projects simply make sense.

New Jersey Government Lowers Lead Limits

New Jersey Government Lowers Lead Limits
Last month the New Jersey government signed a law that limits the amount of lead allowed in a child’s blood, from 10 micrograms of lead per deciliter to 5 micrograms.

According to Durability+Design, in 2015, state officials said that of the 200,000 children tested, fewer than 900 were found to have blood-lead levels higher than 10 micrograms/deciliter, but advocates said some 3,000 children tested higher than 5 micrograms/deciliter that year.

Because of this wider pool of lead-poisoned children, there will most likely be an increase in demand for lead abatement, lead renovation, and lead inspection professionals. Zack Academy has put together several how-to pages to help future New Jersey lead paint professionals to properly attain certification and begin working as soon as possible:
