What's Happening at TEXOWhat's Happening at TEXO
This course covers the requirements for construction and the safe construction and use of scaffolding using the OSHA construction scaffold standard as a guide. Course topics include hazards associated with scaffold design, assembly, disassembly and use, types of scaffolds, determining scaffold capacity, employee qualifications and training, and maintenance, repair, and inspection requirements. Students will participate in workshops to reinforce concepts of safe scaffolding. Upon course completion students will have the ability to identify the types of scaffolds and their components, determine safe assembly, use, and disassembly, and recognize common violations of OSHA Standards.
Millennials. No other topic in the industry is as divisive. Companies of all sizes struggle to recruit talented millennials to their teams. Yet, those that succeed are faced with a more daunting challenge — how do you consistently engage, motivate and coach this new generation? While there is broad consensus the different generations — baby boomers, Gen Xers, and millennials — see the world differently, the meaningful questions are, "To what degree?" and "Why?" In partnership with Purdue University and the University of Denver, Bradley Hartmann led an intergenerational, industry-specific study to evaluate how each generation views themselves and views the other generations. The results and recommendations will entertain and enlighten, enabling your multigenerational team to collaborate more effectively.
