This program is a must for anyone concerned about health and safety on the job, including managers concerned about liability and workers' compensation costs, employees who want to learn proper techniques for protecting their safety and health at work, and business owners who want to learn about compliance with MIOSHA. Attendees will learn that an effective Safety and Health Management System (SHMS) has proven to be a decisive factor in reducing the extent and severity of work-related injuries and illnesses. The result is lower accident-related costs, reduced absenteeism, lower turnover, higher productivity, and improved employee morale. (2 sessions)

NEW FOR 2016! The design-build (DB) project delivery method offers advantages that make it a suitable alternative to the construction-manager-at-risk and design-bid-build methods. This seminar explains the project management process as applied to DB projects as well as considerations for joint venture DB projects. Organization options are explained, source contract material is referenced, and a discussion and explanation of how the project critical path is affected and who is impacted. How risk and float ownership are transferred between the project parties is also explored. Students will leave the class with a better understanding of the advantages and the risks of this project delivery method.

It is absolutely vital for a contractor to choose an unbiased contract that apportions risks and responsibilities in a fair and balanced manner. The A201™–2007, General Conditions of the Contract for Construction is the keystone document in a majority of projects that set forth a contractor’s roles and responsibilities on a construction project. The A201 is incorporated by reference into other contract documents with owners, architects and subcontractors and puts a contractor on solid legal footing with the owner of a project by balancing risks and responsibilities equitably. This seminar will instruct those who negotiate and manage the use of AIA contracts, including design-build, construction management, and subcontract agreements.
