Safety Takes Heart

One Drive288 Worker's Quick Response

The SH 288 construction team always keeps safety top of mind, but they’re not usually who you think of during an emergency. Last February, however, construction worker Jose Aguayo was installing piping for drainage south of the Holly Hall intersection, when something happened. A driver pulled behind the barrels near where Jose was working and waived him over. While driving on SH 288, she experienced severe chest pains, and needed help. The Drive288 worker, Jose, called 911 immediately and stayed with the driver until emergency responders arrived.

What could’ve been a disastrous situation was aided by Jose Aguayo’s quick actions. Because of his dedication to the safety of everyone who drives along the Drive288 project, one Houstonian received the vital medical care she needed promptly. Jose went above and beyond his job duties as an employee of the project, and his sharp-witted actions made the entire crew proud to work alongside him.
