Members of the American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) came together to share safety best practices and challenges.

The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC) and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) held their inaugural safety summit on Nov. 12 in Houston. Members of both associations came together to share best practices and challenges.

Following a keynote address by Tim Manherz, operating manager of Encore Concrete Construction, winner of ASCC’s Owner/Executive Safety Award, TCAS past president, and ASCC board member, attendees broke into breakout sessions to discuss topics including medical case management, safety vs. production, medical marijuana on the job, root cause analysis and implementing change, and more. 

“The goal was 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,” TCA Executive Director Mitch Bloomquist said. “I have no doubt this is exactly what took place.”
