The Ontario Asphalt Paving Council was forced to cancel its annual Spring Operations Seminar this past March due to coronavius concerns, but it will return July 15 in a virtual webinar format.
A number of speakers will be part of the Asphalt Operations Webinar, an all-day event that is open to both members of the OAPC, a council of the Ontario Road Builders Association, as well as non-members.
Highlights of the event will include updates from the Ontario Ministry of Labour, providing key information to ensure safe and successful construction in 2020. A presentation from the IHSA's Ken Rayner will discuss how to leverage occupational health and safety systems in times of crisis, while ORBA and OAPC technical director Doubra Ambaiowei will focus on the responsible use of recycled asphalt pavement. In addition, Melissa Deneault from Conestoga College will discuss the incentives and benefits that come with hiring co-op students.
More information on the Asphalt Operations Webinar, as well as registration links, can be found on the ORBA website, https://orba.org/oapc-spring-o...

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
