A member of ASHRAE’s epidemic task force has launched an initiative to set up independent, peer-reviewed testing of indoor air-treatment systems for their efficacy against viruses and for any negative impacts on indoor air quality.
Integrated Viral Protection reports it has sold $15 million worth of the standalone version of the patent-pending Biodefense Indoor Air Protection System since the virus-killing air filter’s launch last August.
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.
Like every profession, the construction industry was upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, and practices of temperature monitoring, PPE usage and social distancing were adopted as some work continued. We'll discuss how construction estimates can be built to account for changes in labor and equipment due to COVID-19 and what impacts the use of social distancing could have on construction project timeline.
JobSiteCare is a physician-led telemedicine practice centered on caring for injured workers, providing immediate triage, diagnosis, and guided treatment right to the workplace. During this webinar, we’ll discuss how JobSiteCare’s model enables companies to take better care of their people while ensuring maximally efficient operations.
Future-Proofing Infrastructure Stories by AREP and Bentley
Building and public space design is not just about improving the aesthetics of infrastructure, it’s important to consider the usability of the building for the inhabitants. During this webinar, we'll explore the tools and projects that allow buildings of all types to be designed and operated with a better understanding of how the people will use them.
Being safe means paying attention to both mind and body. It is about more than just wearing hardhats and safety glasses. It means recognizing how important mental health really is to everyone’s overall safety. There is help available to combat suicide, depression, distractions and more.
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.
