General Webinar Overview:  
The WEDA Safety Commission is honored to convene this conversation among industry executives, focusing on how their organizations are surviving and thriving in the COVID-19 era. Executives from small and large contractors will share their experiences from training operations after first learning of the virus to initial and ongoing fleet messaging in the sea of ever-changing information. We will also discuss office and field return-to-work strategies, including managing social impulses for those working in close quarters. Finally, the execs will share their “long game” strategies as they look to the future and use the increased focus and attention of safety to become better at safe operations for the long term.
