Howdy everybody! Tomorrow, the Construction Institutes 2020 Summit is underway! I wanted to open up a discussion on the content of the conference for students, most of the material is super-technical but can be located on the program tab using the link below. I planned on attending as many technical sessions as possible to take detailed notes/ask your questions! Please add any comments/questions to this thread.Hope to see many of you there!Summit Website:https://www.cisummit.org/
Upon a project's completion of day-to-day operations, maintenance and repairs become the responsibility of facility managers (FM). This presentation will explore FM safety needs, focusing on a direct preliminary investigation with facility owners. Information is provided on types of OSH incidences that occur in various facilities, and the facility features that may require modifications after occupancy to address the owner's OSH needs, as well as the measures taken by FM personnel to address safety needs.
Speakers: Nicholas Tymvios, Ph.D., Bucknell University; Glenda Mayo, Ph.D., LEED-AP, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte; Jake Smithwick, Ph.D., MPA, The University of North Carolina at Charlotte; and Joe Archie, Director of Campus Operations at Loyola Law School, Loyola Marymount UniversityNick and his colleague spoke on the importance of engaging the facility manager during the design phase for input on maintenance needs throughout the lifetime of the building. This was the first time I have heard encouragement to do this. Keeping those who maintain the building safe should not be an afterthought!
