Essential Strategies for Construction Loss Prevention

SEPTEMBER 20, 2013

Is your firm prepared to handle every risk it faces? ENR’s first Risk and Compliance Summit will give you a rare overview of the fast-evolving field of risk management, using key legal and financial disasters of 2012 as points of reference. Topics will include ways to assess, compare, and mitigate risk; project-related failures; managing your workforce; complying with changing regulations; emerging risks; and avoiding the trap of over-anticipating one kind of risk while failing to see another as it develops.


Keynote Speaker- Ed Littleton, Senior VP, Risk Management of Balfour Beatty Construction
