Not all safety glasses are the same. It’s important that you know the difference and which ones your workers are using on the job.

June is National Safety Month. And while it’s a good time for everyone to pause and refocus on safety, keeping workers safe on the job site, in the office and at home is a 24/7/365 commitment. ModSpace is committed to putting safety first and proud to work with many companies that do the same.
TEXO Association is one example. As the largest commercial contractors association in Texas and one of the largest affiliates of The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), TEXO expects to train 6,000 workers this year. To help TEXO facilitate its Safety First training program, ModSpace recently donated this modular building to use as a training center. We hope the new facility serves the trainers and their students well.
