Sideshow Schedule

1:15pm

Help your team understand the costs of a slip and fall 

Matt Gerich, CSP, ASM, MBG Consulting LLC

When a company is sued for a slip and fall, everyone bears the cost. Does your team understand all of the expenses that go into defending a claim — let alone losing and having to pay out? In this session, Matt will share how to help your team discover why they happen and how they could have been prevented by using a real-life scenario.


2:15pm

Build a custom training course for plowing your properties

Matt Crinklaw, LMN

The benefits of onboarding new employees goes well beyond just health and safety. Untrained new workers tend to cause more property and equipment damage. Learn how to build custom training courses for your properties in the summer so workers can see all the hazards and problems snow hides. We will then combine those courses with Greenius snow courses to build a powerful onboarding and training program for your snow fighters.


3:15pm

Making process development fun!

Scott Lesak, Kasel Rocks Landscaping

Process development ... it may sound boring but it is essential for your business to run efficiently and allow for growth. Learn how to create or improve existing processes that convey the purpose and show "how we do it here" using 3 components: visual communication, detailed description, and trainability.


4:15pm

Using technology to maximize situational awareness 

Patrick Baglien, Vue Robotics

Site-by-site inspections are labor intensive, costly, and extend decision-making timelines before, during, and after a weather event. And they aren’t always possible. Decision-makers need situational awareness to make effective operational decisions, quickly. Scaling condition analysis monitoring across diverse operational footprints to better inform responses, strengthen resilience, and recover from impact weather events can help.

10:15am

Using KPIs to drive net profits

Whitney Griffin, Aspire Software

Identifying the key activities required to achieve success is pivotal to business planning, and KPIs are the metrics used to tell the story of how those activities are being performed. Regardless of how you report your KPIs, they are essential for determining whether your business is operating profitably. This session will give an overview of the six most critical KPIs that drive net profit.


11:15am

Advanced liquids applications

Dan Gilliland, Camion Systems

If you're ready to take your liquids applications up a notch, there are advanced techniques that can be used to improve performance and results, including direct liquids application post-treats, additives and using liquids during rain and mixed precipitation events.
