SAN ANTONIO - Safety is a priority on every jobsite, regardless of construction value. More than 170 industry professionals registered for the 2nd Annual Construction Safety Summit Oct. 4 at the Alzafar Shrine Temple. Committee Chair Ted Dunnam of ESC Safety Consultants originally conceptualized this idea two years ago after watching the construction fatalities in San Antonio increase.




    OSHA Area Director, Alex Porter, discussed the continued importance of safety in construction before taking a moment of silence as he read the list of names of those who died in jobsite accidents in the past two years.
    The seven-hour event hosted by the American Subcontractors Association (ASA), ESC Safety Consultants, Midco Sling, OSHA, and Zachry, and incorporated three sessions on various safety topics, including an owner’s session with Alex Porter.  The goal of the event was to assist companies in embracing a safety culture. –cmw
