Why Your Company Needs a Lean Champion

Every construction company should have someone who has a driving passion for Lean Construction practices.  Why?  Because these practices can have a positive effect on every entity involved in the project.  Project owners want to see tangible results for their investment, and contractors and designers want to do their job well and efficiently.
        
Here at MBI, we believe that Lean Construction processes will bring value to each of our members. That is why we are offering these courses in May, and why we have committed to becoming a registered testing site.   CLICK HERE to learn more about MBI's upcoming Lean offerings.
 
For additional information on becoming a Lean Champion for your company, contact Tom Fulcher at 515.657.4395 or tfulcher@mbionline.com.

Every year, Safety Week works to engage companies across the U.S to refocus and reenergize our commitment to reducing injuries on job sites. The mission of Safety Week is to collectively raise the awareness of the construction industry's continuing commitment to eliminating worker injury, and to clearly communicate its dedication to a shared culture of care, concern and the belief that safety must be a priority every week. We walk on to different work sites with different jobs, trades and tasks. But one thread connects all of us - not just to each other, but to everyone who depends on us at home - safety.
There are many ways to celebrate this year's Safety Week and the partners and sponsors of the nation-wide event have put a website together to help you in your preparations. Visit the   Safety Week Website to download logos, email signatures, templates and theme descriptions to use in your newsletters.

Be a leader in safety. Join us in celebrating Safety Week 2017!

In 2013, MBI partnered with Midwest Builders' Casualty Group (MWBC) to provide our members with access to their specialized workers' compensation insurance program.  MWBC has focused on providing workers' comp coverage to the commercial construction industry throughout the Midwest for over thirty years. Their success has come from providing the highest level of service and knowledge because of their focused market.  They understand the construction industry and have built their program on fostering long-term partnerships by maintaining both competitive and stable pricing, while not overreacting when claims occur.  MWBC is also a dividend paying program that utilizes the most generous loss ratio for dividend qualification purposes in the industry. 
 
For more information on this program and to find out why 98% of MWBC's policyholders elect to renew coverage with them annually, please have your agent contact Midwest Builders' Casualty at (800) 374-7798 or visit www.mwbc.com

Our lobbying team led the effort to get Senate File 413 passed out of both the Iowa House and Iowa Senate.  The passage of this bill is the culmination of a multi-year effort to reduce Iowa's statute of repose.  However, the latest action on the Iowa House and Senate floors was only part of this long and - at times - frustrating effort. >>>Read More
