Registration

Welcome to the website of the ASU Safety Leadership in Planning, Design and Construction Workshop

Welcome Note from Dr. G. Edward Gibson, Jr. 

The theme for this conference is “Driving Safety Culture throughout the Project Life Cycle.” The School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment at Arizona State University organizing this workshop to bring together renowned safety professionals, contractors, engineers, project managers, clients, risk managers, and academics for the presentation and exchange of their experiences and research.
The city of Tempe, Arizona is an excellent choice for the workshop. Located in the heart of metro Phoenix, Tempe is a vibrant city known for great dining and nightlife options, Arizona State University, Broadway shows and other activities that event attendees can enjoy once the meeting day is through. The best time to visit Tempe is October through April when you’ll see blue skies with highs in the upper 70s to low 90s. While the rest of the country battles changeable conditions, Arizonians move outside for the best weather of the year. In fact, many residents call this “snowbird season,” thanks to all the additional visitors in town.
The workshop will include three keynotes as well as two tracks of the technical session. This will allow presentation of innovative and up-to-date industry trends and research related to construction, manufacturing, and the process community. A panel discussion will end the day, allowing participants to gain insight from the esteemed presenters.
On behalf of The School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, Arizona State University in Tempe, and the Organizing Committee, I invite you to our one-day workshop and the city of Tempe.
