Summer Forum Workshop Highlight: Killing Conditions – Why They Continue
"Honest discussions with the audience on outdated construction work traditions and why now is the right time for change. Discussed in plain terms and example, TJ offers methods to eliminate outdated conditions that are hurting or killing workers on our projects. Conditions we overlook on a construction site - though simple conversation and contractual provisions would prevent injuries or death. Ten opportunities including a topic few are willing to discuss. All offered to save your schedule, profits and lives. Most if not all the interventions offered will keep our sons and daughters unhurt for little or no money.
This workshop will be presented by TJ Lyons. Board certified as an Occupational Health and Safety Technologist and Certified Safety Professional, he is proud to have taken some of these skills to his local community. A past assistant chief, New York adjutant fire instructor (hazardous materials), emergency medical technician, and still a volunteer firefighter, he sees the need to bring safety from the field to the home as often as possible.
TJ was awarded the IRMI Gary E. Bird Horizon Award for his efforts in implementing the Occupational Safety and Health Administration Voluntary Protection Program on the first construction project in the state of New York. Mr. Lyons was a past chapter writer for the American Society of Testing of Materials and for the recent American Society of Safety Engineers’ Construction Safety Management and Engineering, vol. 1 and vol. 2. He is past-president of the Hudson River Valley Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers.
This workshop will be held, Tuesday, June 26, in Bossa Nova 3, from 8:00 – 9:30 am.
