Two tower cranes at the site of the New Orleans hotel collapse are in worse shape than initially thought, forcing responders to reconsider how to dismantle them. An upper section of a hotel under construction in New Orleans partially collapsed on Saturday, Oct. 12, killing at least two and injuring eighteen. One other person at the site remained unaccounted for as of Sunday evening, according to officials.
About half an hour before the almost-completed pedestrian bridge collapsed onto a busy Miami-area road last year, killing six people, Denney Pate, the bridge’s engineer-of-record, sent a text to Linda Figg, the chief executive of FIGG Bridge Engineers.
During this webinar, attendees will learn about the top technologies that EHS leaders in the industry are leveraging to improve safety and the bottom line. You’ll hear from Industry Safe and safety experts at AECOM, Black & Veatch, and Parsons Corporation as they share how they’ve implemented safety software to manage and store key components of their safety programs at projects across the globe.
During this webinar, we’ll discuss how working in a collaborative manner with input from agency leadership, employees and stakeholders can successfully create and-roll out entirely new, consistent protocols, supplemental training and hands-on instruction, and pilot programs that allow best practices to thrive and set the stage for positive outcomes.
Technology that gives managers better visibility about what’s happening on the job site in near real-time, gives them tools to spot and mitigate inefficiencies and risks before they become disruptions or expensive calamities. Project tech specialists will share how technology is helping to improve management’s ability to see what’s going on, while there’s still time for corrections to enhance production, profits, and safety.
No matter how well-managed the project is inside the gate, the public space outside marks a dangerous frontier of risks and liability through which workers, materials and equipment constantly pass. During this webinar, we will talk with site safety managers about how they manage the risk, and what technologies are available to help.
Both public outreach during a project and crisis management when something goes badly wrong requires communication with the public. What are the strategies for each? What are the similarities? What are the differences? In this webinar, industry insiders will discuss keys to forming a communication structure during the public outreach phase of a project.
The National Transportation Safety Board’s Oct. 8 release of documents related to its FIU bridge collapse investigation raises questions but provides no definitive conclusions about why the partially built structure suddenly crashed to the ground on March 15, 2018, killing six.
