The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA), Mt. Vernon, IA, announce the ASCC/TCA Safety Summit 2020. This is a new event, designed to bring those responsible for safety in their companies together for a day of information exchange. “Our hope is that safety professionals from ASCC and TCA members across the country will come together to share best practices and their most daunting challenges,” says Bev Garnant, executive director of the ASCC. The first summit is scheduled for March 20, 2020 in Houston, TX.
The summit will open with keynote speaker, Tim Manherz, senior vice president, TAS Commercial Concrete Construction, Houston, winner of last year’s prestigious ASCC Owner/Executive Safety Award and immediate past president of TCA. The remainder of the day will be devoted to breakout sessions, the heart of the program. Attendees will move from table to table to delve into a wide range of hard-hitting topics selected to foster spirited discussion. “The goal is for every attendee to leave armed with new ideas and contact information from fellow members, eager to continue the conversations, and with renewed energy for keeping their companies safe,” says TCA executive director Mitch Bloomquist.
