Join us in this day in the life of a Highway General Foreman during snow operations. He'll cover long-term planning and logistics and daily operations - when it goes as planned and when it gets ugly! Communication is the key! Formen are positioned between managers, the workforce, and the public and have a unique perspective on operational situations. This presentation will also provide insight and feedback on the technologies and tools used in today's winter mainteance operations.
After Attending This Session, You Will be Better Able to:
1. Give more consideration to logistics in both your long-term and short-term planning for winter maintenance operations.
2. Discuss the need for more effective communication between managers and trades personnel and gain insight into what they are THINKING versus what they are SAYING.
3. Review how your operation approaches change and adapts to new innovative technologies. Discuss what works, what doesn't, and why.
