Breakout Session: Tactical Confrontation for a Safer Workplace 
Managers, supervisors, foremen and crew leaders — anyone responsible for getting the work done safely — engage in confrontational situations every day as part of their work. These situations don’t have to be tense or awkward. This presentation explores the reasons why conversations that should be no big deal escalate into time-wasting conflicts and how to avoid them.
