American Track is a turnkey railroad solutions provider, your one-stop-shop for all things railroad design, maintenance, and construction.

The Pennsylvania State Senate declared the last full week of July as Construction Opioid Awareness Week, an event for the construction industry to promote awareness of the dangers of opioids and prescription drug abuse with workers in the industry. Construction workers are involved in very physically demanding jobs and because of that, many turn to medication for relief.

Today's Tool Box Talk highlights Pain Management, which most often refers to the treatment of pain from the spine, muscles, joints, and the nervous system. Opioids should be avoided as the first line of treatment provided by primary care. Safe and effective alternative pain treatments that can be used prior to opioids are:

^ Physical therapy
^ Chiropractic manipulation
^ Non-opioid prescriptions such as topical analgesics and muscle relaxants
^ Medical equipment such as cervical braces and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units
^ Interventional pain management procedures such as injections (trigger point, spinal epidural steroid) and radiofrequency nerve ablations

We are pleased to announce that Humberto Garcia Santana has been selected as our Honorary Golden Spike Recipient. Humberto 'Beto' joined our Human Resources Department in August of 2022. His impact was immediate, and he has only continued to grow over the past two years!

Beto demonstrates a genuine care for others and works hard to create special moments for employee birthdays, work anniversaries, and several other celebrations in the lives of our employees.

Outside of work, Beto coordinates Toys for Tots and various food drives during the holidays. It is evident that Beto is a true changemaker and is very deserving of this special Honorary Golden Spike Award. Way to go, Beto!
