Training Tuesday – Hazard Recognition and Control
ICBA’s Hazard Recognition and Control session is designed to provide participants the required knowledge to understand the principle of hazard recognition and control as well as the methods used to ensure hazards are identified and adequately addressed in the workplace.

Topics covered include:

The Winner’s Curse – A systems approach to winning more work and increasing profits: a June 24 course in Burnaby that looks at the goal of trying to minimize costs when tendering contracts. And too often, contractors focus solely on price, adopting strategies and pricing that can kill the rewards of winning the contract. These tactics can go so far as to threaten the company’s financial health. This breakfast presentation will focus first on how to be a smarter competitor in bidding situations and then on alternative strategies that will shelter you and your company from the price game, if not remove you from it all together.
