At the March Safety Roundtable, Bob Kunz, Corporate Safety Director for Dimeo Construction, will discuss an initiative coming out of the AGC of Massachusetts called the CARE (Consciousness, Alignment, Respect, Empowerment) Construction Safety Program. One of the first undertakings of that program was the creation of Universal Orientation, a once-a-year orientation video that’s accepted by all participating members. It’s a high-quality, interactive orientation for all trades. To gain a better understanding of the details of Universal Orientation, join us for a one-hour presentation that may prompt and answer any questions you may have.
