2021 Employee Appreciation Event

2021 Employee Appreciation Event

A competitive Pinewood Derby race and a very active scavenger hunt are just some of the highlights from our 2021 Employee Appreciation Event. Our team got together on October 30th at the Jarrettsville VFW hall for crabs, pit beef, and other delicious food. We reflected on the past two years and took time to remember employees who are no longer with us. We toasted to birthdays, new parents and grandparents, and weddings. It felt so nice to get the team together and we can’t wait to do it again next year.

 

Combining 2020 and 2021, we celebrated:

Employees are the heart of our Comer Construction Family. Each year, we recognize and thank all of our employees and their spouses for their hard work and continued dedication to Comer Construction during our Annual Employee Appreciation Event.

This year’s event was held at the Jarrettsville Manor Memorial VFW Post 8672 in Forest Hill where everyone enjoyed live music by The Dave Mark Band and a delicious buffet of Maryland crabs, shrimp, pit beef and turkey, along with a scavenger hunt and other games and door prizes. Big congrats to Sherrie Mosby, this year’s Halloween Costume Winner.

Employees Complete First Aid, CPR Certifications

Employees Complete First Aid, CPR Certifications

Safety in the workplace is at the forefront of everything we do at Comer Construction. And as a leading Maryland minority construction company, we’ve made it our top priority to ensure our employees are trained and certified in several critical areas of safety. Over the past several weeks, 36 Comer Construction employees completed a full-day First Aid and CPR Certification course offered in partnership with the National Safety Council and the Maryland Center for Environmental Training (MCET).

Comer Construction hosted three separate opportunities for employees to learn these life-saving skills during the full-day course held on Saturdays. All Supervisors are required to attend and become certified in both First Aid and CPR. Senior Leadership, along with many other employees, also received their two-year certification in both areas.

The CPR and First Aid Certifications are designed to train staff on how to react with confidence in emergency situations. Staff members worked with a manikin to practice one-rescuer CPR and rescue breathing techniques for choking. In addition, participants were trained on how to assess the scene of an emergency, establish the condition of a victim, infection control, and the latest guidelines for CPR and emergency cardiac care.
