Speak Up! & Listen Up!: Two Simple Processes to Improve Safety Culture
NDA
December 10, 2014
1:00 PM EST - 2:00 PM EST


Too many employees withhold their safety concerns because they’re afraid of the consequences of speaking up and many of us misconstrue concern as criticism. Speak Up! and Listen Up! prepare both parties, the messenger and the receiver, to handle safety-related feedback respectfully and work together to develop solutions. Don’t let another safety contact end badly; too much is at stake.

Skid steers and John Deere machines most targeted among $300 million worth of heavy equipment stolen in 2013
Equipment World
Nearly $300 million worth of construction and other heavy equipment was stolen in 2013 with only 21 percent of it recovered, according to the latest theft report from the National Insurance Crime Bureau and the National Equipment Register. The majority of thefts occurred during the spring and summer months with August topping all other months with 1,305 thefts occurring during that month alone. Because availability is a factor in these thefts, it’s not a surprise to see the peak months for construction activity accounting for the most thefts. The least amount of thefts, 590, occurred in February.

Demolition planning as part of construction — reuse and recycling of parts improves the eco-efficiency of buildings
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland via Phys.org
With good planning, it is possible to promote the reuse of construction and demolition waste and thereby both conserve the environment and save on material costs. In the future, it will be even more important to assess how buildings can reasonably be repaired or demolished into parts, together with how the remaining service life of the parts can be utilized in new applications. The best method is to implement demolition planning already as a component of construction design.
