Wednesday, March 25, 1 p.m. Eastern: Shifting Jobsites During COVID-19, Jonathan Marsh, James Benham, Sean McGuire and Josh Bone

The COVID-19 crisis is forcing contractors to perform work in challenging new ways. This webinar will focus on two scenarios that will become more likely in the weeks ahead — forced remote work with no jobsite activity and one in which jobsites might be shut down and fabrication facilities remain open.

We will discuss how to prepare staff to work remotely, what work can be prioritized to be done remotely and how to utilize fabrication space safely to keep projects progressing.

This panel will include Jonathan Marsh, MEP Innovation Lab; James Benham, CEO of JBKnowledge; Sean McGuire, MCAA Director of Innovative Technologies; and Josh Bone, Director of Industry Innovation at NECA.
