A safe and hazard-free jobsite is the goal to which every contractor should subscribe. Regardless of how well-developed the processes in place are, efficiency and redundancy are common when processes are manual and the field isn’t directly integrated with the back office ERP. Join our panel of experts as they share their challenges and results from digitizing and integrating their safety inspections and audits.
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.
