Meridian Institute

National Summit on Contractor Safety

Related: Health, Sustainability and Resilience

For the Duke Energy Foundation and ORC Worldwide (a global human resources firm), Meridian facilitated a two-day national contractor safety conference that brought together 80 corporate leaders from host employers and contracting firms, as well as representatives from business associations, labor, government, and other entities, to address how to improve contractor safety performance.

The conference focused on the prevention of fatalities and serious injuries. The goals of the conference were to (1) identify key barriers to high performance, (2) identify best practices for effective contractor safety management, and (3) identify areas for future research that will contribute to improved contractor safety. The results of the conference were widely disseminated to contractors and host employers, as well as to others interested in these issues.
