NEW! Text Message Updates – 474747
We get it. The RED Feed text messages sent from random numbers was a bit confusing. That’s why we’ve enhanced our group texting platform to bring you news in a simple format.
Starting today, all Kent Companies text messages will arrive from “474747.” Save “474747” as a new contact in your phone named “Kent Companies.” This will help your phone recognize and deliver legitimate Kent Companies text messages. If you have questions about the RED Feed email or text message newsletter, please email Leah Gradl or call 256-426-5026.

OSHA Focus Four: Struck-By
Submitted by Erie Puga, Safety Manager
Struck-by injuries occur when an object comes into contact with a person with such force that it causes harm. It’s different from a caught in or -between injury because the impact is responsible for the injury. Remember the four common categories of struck-by hazards:
- Flying Object
- Falling Object
- Swinging Object
- Rolling Object
Remember to consider weather conditions while working outdoors. Adverse winds, heavy rain and snow can all contribute to objects becoming irregularly mobile and causing injury. Your safety managers are always available to help address job site hazards and to answer questions on your job site.
