Underground Construction and Job Hunting Resources

Date: June 10, 2009

Underground Construction
Please join us for the next Puget Sound Area Safety Summit as we focus on underground construction. Don Robertson, Safety Director of Gary Merlino Construction, will discuss what happens when a water main breaks and the response effort to bring the situation under control. In addition to this and other key issues, he will cover what it takes to locate your responsibility and the appropriate way to handle the documentation involved.

We will also have a presentation from Ray Clouatre, Safety Director for Frank Coluccio Construction Co., Inc., who will provide an overview of the differences between boring, drilling, and tunneling procedures. Owners often specify the exact safety experience they are seeking in a new hire, as is the case with tunnel safety, a relatively new modality. It can be difficult to fill this requirement. Ray will discuss the various kinds of underground construction with a focus on tunneling safety requirements.

Job Hunting Resources
Each month, Summit attendees have the opportunity to network with job seekers and employers who are looking to hire employees. This month, the Summit will also provide additional valuable resources with handouts containing important web and community resources that help connect job seekers with employment opportunities. A critical step to locating a job is knowing where to look so please join us for this helpful session and help us spread the word to others.

Puget Sound Area Safety Summits are held the second Wednesday of every month at the Aerospace Machinists Hall. There is no pre-registration or cost to attend.

For more information regarding this event please contact Anne Laughlin, Summit Coordinator, at (206) 812-3824 or send an email to alaughlin@smartwa.org.

"The Safety Summit is a wonderful example of what can be achieved when employers, labor, and government work cooperatively to attain a common goal - in this case, the reduction of deaths and serious job-related injuries."
