Webinar - Safety Technology

July 12, 2017

11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Presenter: Troy Porter, Construction Safety Specialists, Inc., Des Moines, IA

The construction industry is well ahead of where it was 20 years ago when it comes to safety, and a lot of that can be equated to newer/better technologies to keep employees safe. But what’s that going to look like in another 20 years? In this webinar, we’ll discuss where current construction safety technologies are helping other companies, where the industry seems to be heading with new technologies and what’s currently being worked on to be implemented in the foreseeable future. The cost of doing business is not going down, and the cost of keeping your employees safe isn’t either. We encourage our members that are interested in construction safety to connect to this webinar, and see where they can begin to evolve their own existing systems and job sites.
