    MBI Annual Winter Conference

    Prairie Meadows Events & Conference Center; 1 Prairie Meadows Drive; Altoona, Iowa

    The MBI Annual Winter Conference offers two and a half days of educational sessions and popular annual events, which attract all aspects of the construction industry. Learning opportunities include a great combination of sessions focused on leadership and project management on Tuesday, as well as the annual Safety Day of training on Wednesday. There is something for everyone, from the construction worker, to the President and CEO of a company. Great values can be found at this popular annual event!

    We’re excited to announce our own Joshua Jacobsen, Sr. Loss Control Consultant, will be presenting on Wednesday, February 26, from 3-5 p.m. Here’s a look at his topic and the information about the presentation:

    Construction’s High Risk Tolerance: How Can We Influence a Shift in Behavior?

    Struggling to get people to listen to your message and work safe? Have that gut feeling that someone is going to get hurt, but don’t know how to get the employee to buy into your safety program? You’re not alone! Employee beliefs and perceptions of risk, societal expectations, and management are influencing construction worker’s decisions every day and sometimes to the detriment of safe work. This session will discuss the current industry state of risk tolerance on a job site and two methods of influencing the risk. We will discuss how to implement an effective near hit/miss program and the value it has on interpersonal beliefs. Lastly, we will discuss effective preplanning communication processes to get employees engaged in preventing loss.

    Be sure to check out Joshua’s presentation and so much more.
