Workforce Outlook Lunch & Learn (w/ Ten-Minute Ted Talks) ... A series of short ten to fifteen minute presentations from fellow AGCMO contractors and educators describing the ways they are building programs to recruit, train and retain the next generation of workers in innovative and exciting ways. The short and rapid presentations will each be followed by a short question period for all participants to build off the ideas and programs presented. 

Jeff Montgomery, IWR North America talks about Trends in Safety.  Strategies for sustainable safety success can vary depending on the size and structure of an organization. A large general contractor may have more than a hundred safety professionals whereas as small to medium size firm may have only one. Sometimes a smaller company may not even have someone solely dedicated to the safety role but shoulders that responsibility in addition to other priorities. Ultimately this leaves the question, how successful is your organizations safety program and culture? We'll look at how to build a successful safety approach for various company structures, focusing on how top level executives can influence safety culture. We'll also review the various resources available to promote and enhance safety expertise.
