“Engineering” Safety

Click for full-size flyer.

Mike Marzano and Jerry Ledbetter will be presenting about the importance of “Engineering” out safety hazards early on in a project’s design…not only to make it safe during construction, but also safe to maintain for years to come. They will lightheartedly share some of their favorite FAILS and pitfalls that make it difficult for agencies to safely access and maintain equipment and facilities, often requiring expensive retrofits or modifications after the project is accepted.
