The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, Missouri, and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA), Mt. Vernon, Iowa, have announced the first ASCC/TCA Safety Summit, postponed from 2020, will be held November 12, 2021, in Houston, Texas. The design of the new event is to bring together those responsible for safety in their companies 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, ASCC says of the ASCC Safety Summit.
The summit will open with keynote speaker, Tim Manherz, operations manager, Encore Concrete Construction, Spring, Texas. He is the winner of the prestigious ASCC Owner/Executive Safety Award for 2019 and also a 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. These topics aim 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 also with renewed energy for keeping their companies safe,” says TCA executive director Mitch Bloomquist.
