The Steel Institute of New York speaks with Bryan Brady, director of training for the Iron Workers Locals 40 & 361 Training Facility, about how apprentices and journeymen have navigated a new pandemic learning environment.
Chicago has around 400,000 homes with lead service lines. Although the city has made EPA's safe drinking water standard, the homes tested mostly belong to employees and retirees from the water management department and the voluntary replacement program is not funded beyond 2021.
ENR Texas & Louisiana is honoring four projects for their outstanding safety records and job-site procedures as part of the annual Excellence in Safety Award, a part of our regional Best Projects competition.
Safety should be at the forefront at every project stage. This webinar will explore ways to go beyond compliance by holistically incorporating safe work practices into a jobsite and—better yet—eliminating hazards during design before they occur. Panelists will address the processes they follow to create a comprehensive safety culture and work environment.
The challenges of keeping jobsites safe and projects on schedule are perennial issues in construction, and a disruptive development like a viral pandemic emphasizes that reality. In this webinar, ENR will have a discussion with project leaders and industry experts on how the connections between safety and productivity are keeping projects afloat during the current crisis and beyond.
Project success relies on laying the proper groundwork for construction to start, by ensuring the proper budget is set, due diligence is performed to reduce risk and that the best team is assembled. Newsmakers will discuss the key elements in funding, developing and managing a project from beginning to end to ensure not just on-time and on-budget completion, but also that all workers stay injury free.
In response to the pandemic, contractors everywhere have adopted new protocols to not only keep workers free from injury, but also to protect them from infectious disease. ENR will talk with field safety professionals, a surety expert and early adopters of new job-site safety technology to get a glimpse at the safe jobsite of tomorrow.
Requirements for social distancing and limiting headcount on jobsites working through the pandemic have changed the way many sites are organized. Contractors adopted these strategies to keep sites open, but are now finding they can plan more effectively with much more accurate headcounts. We'll discuss the benefits this shift in site access tracking can bring.
