LCI Congress Track Preview: Turn Up the Heat—with Field Execution & Safety

Field execution and safety go hand in hand to ensure that our crews go home every day unharmed. That’s why this Congress track is such a valuable opportunity for attendees. Whether you are working on a small renovation or a large-scale new build, making sure the site is safe for everyone involved should be your top priority. In this track, sessions will address how to create and enforce a safe work environment and how you can stay up to date on Lean best practices to add value to field execution and keep project team members safe.

Sessions will share stories about how Lean practices are improving efficiency, productivity, and safety on the jobsite. Attendees can look forward to hearing from some of the top professionals in the field about how to maintain safe and efficient operations. Attendees will gain insights from case studies and real-world examples from Lean experts in the field.

Presentations will cover:

  • How a Lean program can develop the next generation of field leaders
  • What innovative practices can optimize production, decrease waste, and promote safe practices
  • How all stakeholders (the design community, general contractors, owners, trade partners, and consultants) can influence Lean practices in the field to deliver better results
