NDA To Hold Risk Management Course at World of Concrete in June

Published: 31/5, 2021

PDa Magazine is pleased to present regular updates from the US National Demolition Association. This column comes from NDA Executive Director Jeff Lambert. 

In conjunction with World of Concrete, NDA will hold the Foundations of Demolition - Risk Management Course, June 10th in Las Vegas. I hope you are reading this issue at World of Concrete and enjoying the construction industries first major conference since the beginning of the pandemic. 

This spring, NDA hosted virtual versions of its Foundations of Demolition courses on Project Management and Job Cost. The courses had great participation, with approximately 40 registrants each. The Superintendent Course will be presented virtually June 16-17.

 The Certification Board of NDA (CBN) held its kick-off and follow-up meetings in March and April and plans to meet this summer in Chicago to begin Job Task Analysis. NDA plans to launch its certification program in 2022. Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, if you have not done so, please register your staff and colleagues for the Risk Management and Boot Camp training.

 On March 31, President Joe Biden introduced the American Jobs Plan, which outlines broad proposals to overhaul the nation’s infrastructure, as well as proposals to change the U.S. tax code. This plan was crafted as a starting point for negotiations in Congress. In response, NDA sent letters to the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works alerting them to elements of the plan NDA believes should receive Congressional support. NDA will stay in regular communication with Congress on infrastructure policy, and proved members updates on the latest developments.

NDA also has created a grassroots alert where members can contact their legislators in support of NDA’s infrastructure priorities.

 Stay tuned for more information on the NDA OSHA Alliance. We will issue a press release once the Alliance has been formalized.

 In the next episode of our podcast, now for download, our guests include NDA partner Affinity HR Group’s Claudia St. John on potential HR effects from the Biden administration; Jose Blanco, Secretary-General for the European Demolition Association (EDA) on what the industry in Europe has learned from the pandemic; and NDA’s Director of Government Affairs Kevin McKenney, who discusses the Biden infrastructure plan.

 NDA’s Bill More and David Sinclair represented our organization on an EDA webinar on disaster relief, May 19th. I hope you had a chance to participate.

 With all that has been going on with the industry and at the NDA, if you are not a member of our community of dedicated demolition professionals I invite you to join us today!
