Wagman, Inc., Austin Bridge and Road, LP… Senior safety leaders and project management executives from these firms are coming to the Nation’s Capital February 23-24 to share the “secrets of success” for their industry colleagues during a special “Best of the Best in Safety” workshop hosted by the ARTBA-TDF’s “Transportation Builder Institute.” The program is more than just a classroom lecture—it's an interactive workshop designed to walk you through real-life examples and let experts and your peers trouble-shoot your job site and project safety challenges. Each of the firms making presentations achieved OSHA recordable rates as low as .32 and insurance experience modification rates below .6 over a span of many years. The one-and-a-half day forum will address questions like: • What practices and procedures did these firms employ to achieve high safety compliance rates? • What internal benchmarks do they use to meet safety goals? • What training and motivational programs can be used to improve safety? • What new tools and technologies work for firms like mine?
