Registration is open for the 2019 Construction Safety, Health & Environmental Conference hosted by AGC of America. This conference is regarded as the industry’s top event covering the biggest compliance and risk issues in modern construction, whether we’re talking strictly about conditions on your jobsites or the broader effect on the environment as a whole. The event typically draws about 300 active participants each year with informational sessions targeted at corporate, regional, and project safety. We also see plenty of other organizations, such as those that offer safety, health and environmental services and supplies to industry. In short, this conference is well-worth a spot on any firm’s summer calendar.
The event begins July 22 with an optional session for in-house environmental managers, a roundtable event designed as a fairly open-ended opportunity for professionals to network and lead their own discussions with some pre-meeting polling conducted by AGC. This session is regarded as an add-on for the full conference, which officially opens July 23 at the Seattle Hyatt-Regency Hotel with breakfast, orientation and keynote address. After a brief intermission for networking, the conference will flow into its first general session with a federal OSHA and EPA update.
From there, the conference is divided into break-out sessions with a focus on either safety and health or environmental concerns. These continue through July 25, which wraps up the conference with a general session on AGC regulatory and legislative strategy before a closing forum. You can find a full agenda here, though some slots are still TBD — check the website before the event for an updated listing of what to expect.
Online registration is available now, with current rates of $475 for members, $575 for non-members and steeper discounts for students and AGC chapter staff. Rates go up $50 for same-day registration at the conference itself.
