Year-End Report: WORKSAFE

Now in its fourth year, the WORKSAFE program has seen tremendous success. Between November 2015 and October 2016, 132 projects were enrolled, which is a 25% increase over the previous year. As we look towards next year, we are dedicated to expanding and improving the services offered by the WORKSAFE program, and we welcome your suggestions.

We believe the keys to a safe project include:
  1. A pre-project safety review of how the project will be constructed
  2. Commitment by the whole team to making safety a priority on the site
  3. Training employees to properly prepare for hazards
Through these key aspects, we are able to help contractors and owners ensure that their employees are safe while working on the job site. For questions about the program and to learn more about how it can benefit your project, please contact Tom Suckow at 515-250-0773 or tsuckow@mbionline.com.

Only three sponsorship levels remain for the 2017 Winter Conference, which saw a record number of attendees last year with over 1,350 construction professionals.  This year's conference is scheduled for February 27 - March 1, 2017 at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa.  In addition to the recognition at the conference itself, all sponsors are recognized in the conference brochure, which is sent out to over 10,000 construction professionals in the Midwest.  The brochure goes to press THIS FRIDAY, so if you want to get your logo in the brochure, please let us know as soon as possible.   When looking at the sponsorship packages that remain, think of your vendors and/or partners that may want to go in on one of the sponsorships together.  We are able to split sponsorships and display both (or multiple) logos.

Registration is open for the High Performing Leadership Series for Project Managers and Project Supervisors, now in its fourth year! Designed for the project team, this leadership series has received great reviews over the years and we anticipate attendance to continue to sell out. The program is set in an environment designed to focus on leadership and teamwork between two critical positions within a construction team. It combines the experiences and knowledge of project managers, project supervisors, and presenters, focusing on team building workshops to address common construction roadblocks to effectiveness.
 
This is a great opportunity for members of your project team to take their skills and knowledge to the next level by better understanding topics such as job profits, scheduling, and safety, while defining and managing critical success factors in all phases on a project that can make or break a team, a project, and/or a company.
