The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, MO, and the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA), Mt. Vernon, IA, announce the ASCC/TCA Safety Summit 2022. Following the success of last year’s inaugural summit, this event is designed to bring together those responsible for safety in their companies for a day of information exchange. “Safety professionals from ASCC and TCA members across the country will come together to share best practices and their most daunting challenges,” says Bev Garnant, executive director of the ASCC. The Safety Summit is scheduled for November 10-11 in Albuquerque, NM.

The summit will open with keynote speaker, Mike Schneider, VP & Chief People Person, Baker Concrete Construction, Monroe, OH, a winner of the prestigious ASCC Owner/Executive Safety Award and a past president of ASCC. The remainder of the summit will be devoted to breakout sessions, the heart of the program. Attendees will be able to delve into a wide range of hard-hitting topics selected to foster spirited discussion. “The goal is 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,” says TCA executive director Mitch Bloomquist.
