Safety Excellence

Achieving excellent safety performance is not an option for any project – it’s a mandatory requirement. Despite how well a project achieves its schedule, budget, or level of quality, it will be perceived as unsuccessful if poor safety performance results in injuries to workers.

Join your fellow NWCCC members on June 15th at the Lynnwood Convention Center as we present our June program, “Safety Excellence”. Come listen to four speakers share their learnings, experience, and research, and take back a renewed emphasis on excellent safety performance of your projects.

Speakers include:
John Gambatese, Professor of Construction Management at Oregon State University, will present research on “Using Precursor Analysis to Prevent Low-Frequency High-Impact Events, Including Fatalities”.

Craig Blackwood, Deputy Assistant Director of the Washington State Division of Occupational Safety and Health (DOSH) and Travis Brock, Owner of Shield of Armor Safety, will share details on the Construction Advisory Committee, a joint forum for labor, business and L&I to discuss opportunities for industry-wide safety improvements.

Noah Seixas, Professor of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at University of Washington, will present “Health and Safety Concerns for Women in the Trades”.

Russ and Laurel Youngstrom of Youngstrom Safety will present their very personal safety story. Russ is a work-related paraplegic. He and Laurel travel across the country, sharing their story with audiences from all industries.

Cost is free for 2017 NWCCC members, and $299 for non-members. A light breakfast, a hearty lunch, and plenty of networking opportunities are included.
