The Occupational Safety and Health Administration's new silica rules for the construction industry are being enforced. Contractors must comply in order to avoid costly fines and to protect their workers.
Kotz Sangster attorneys, along with partners from Plante Moran and Guy Hurley, presented on the topic of “What Makes Great Companies Great?” during the Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association’s 2017 Annual Conference at the Soaring Eagle Resort. Speakers included construction law attorney Ed Boucher and employment law attorney John Below. Key information and advice was presented on corporate planning, contract and risk management, as well as employment contracts and policies. The January 19, 2017 presentation was another in a series of presentations for the heavy construction industry. This year’s MITA conference brought more than 1,100 attendees to Mt. Pleasant, Michigan, including contractors, key decision makers and owners in Michigan’s construction industry.
Also in attendance at the conference was construction attorney Jeff Sangster. Along with Ed Boucher, and joined by colleagues from Guy Hurley Insurance & Surety Services, they co-hosted an evening reception for clients and friend of both firms at the conclusion of the conference.
