May 11th 2021 Virtual Webinar: Stuff That Can Kill You by Reese Fortin

  • May Virtual Webinar
    May 11, 2021
    7:30 am - 8:30 am

This exciting discussion facilitated by talented and energetic safety professional Reese Fortin will center around Sundt’s STCKY program (pronounced “sticky”) that emphasizes the Stuff That Can Kill You, which focuses on eliminating catastrophic events on their projects, as opposed to sweating the small stuff. 

They have thoroughly analyzed  their incident trends and have actually predicted that eventually a lack of vigilance to safety will catch up with them, and fatality will occur.  The success of the STCKY program has led to lower incident rates and their ability to win more substantial projects due to their successful safety performance.

June 8th Webinar: How a high level view of a complicated construction project, lead to successful completion with minimal injuries and lost time

  • June 8th Virtual Webinar
    June 8, 2021
    7:30 am - 8:30 am

The view from the top: How a high level view of a complicated construction project, lead to successful completion with minimal injuries and lost time

This discussion, from the perspective of a high level decision maker, will focus upon major government related construction projects, such as the Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton, where workers were found to be extremely complacent from a safety and risk perspective. The unique approach of applying risk control strategies utilized by well-known industry giants such as BP and Dupont, lead to achieving worker “buy in” and valuable contributions to safety, rather than avoidance to safety.
