Safety and Development Day

Rachel Hauber

Last Friday Conco hosted our annual Safety and Development Day in our shop and training room. All of our field and office staff spent the day brushing up on old safety topics and learning about new equipment and techniques. Our goal is to provide the best training possible to empower our Conconians to practice these techniques daily to ensure a safe environment on our job sites! We’re thankful for all the people who played a part in making this day a success! Many Conconians, subcontractors, suppliers, and vendors taught classes and did demonstrations.

Conco crews recently started work on the parking lot, which is phase one of the project. Phase two includes constructing the building which will be their new headquarters!
