questions do you still have?  What challenges has your company faced?  What advice can you share?  Compliance is actually easier than you think.

We have a panel including OSHA, The National Safety Council Nebraska, and safety directors from three of the area’s largest general contractors. There will be a brief introduction to the panel and the standard then the majority of the time is dedicated to Q&A.  There will be opportunities to ask live questions as well as to submit anonymous questions.  Tool representatives will be on hand with displays.

This meeting is being co-sponsored by the National Association of Women In Construction and the National Safety Council, Nebraska.  Buffet breakfast will be provided.  There is no cost to attend, but there is limited seating so registration is required.  ​Due to inclement weather, the date on this event has changed to the 17th.
