It’s Day Two of CONEXPO/CON-AGG, and Daily Commercial News and Journal of Commerce national managing editor Vince Versace and digital media editor Warren Frey are covering the show and reporting from the floor on what they’ve seen at the biggest construction trade show and conference in North America.
On this episode Warren interviews Ironworkers International director of diversity Vicki O’Leary who held the “Be That One Guy” session on Tuesday about how to deal with harassment on the worksite and how to be an ally to those being harassed.
Warren also spoke to John Gaal from the Missouri Works Initiative and Cal Beyer of Holmes Murphy and Associates after their Wednesday session “Opioids in Construction” about the similarities and differences of the opioid crisis in Canada and the United States, the root causes of the crisis and how the industry is tackling a changing landscape as these drugs become ever more dangerous.
