Greg will also present a simple but effective way to create a “Jobsite Safety Analysis (JSA)” and “Job Hazard Analysis (JHA)” that is not only user friendly, but, if used on a consistent basis, will help to thwart a potential citation.

Seminar: Subcontract Review Gotchas! @ MCM Elegante
Apr 7 @ 11:30 am – 3:30 pm

Subcontractors take on the majority of liability as liability is pushed from the owner to the general contractor and finally to them so the ability to review subcontracts and understand how language in the agreements create potential traps is important to survival. In this seminar Spike Cutler will guide us through the traps old and new so you can negotiate your way to a fair and equitable contract.

We will also cover bond forms and new “gotcha” language for controlled insurance programs (CIPs).

This seminar is being presented through the Subcontractors Association of the Metroplex (SAM).
