This presentation will focus on the quality control aspects of rammed aggregate piers.  Theory and application will be discussed for context.

Session 2: Pre-Task Planning, Matt Boos, Terracon

Pre-Task Planning is the process of examining all hazards prior to starting work.   These usually start with a Job Hazard Analysis or Job Safety Analysis or Tool Box Talk, I apply the common sense approach so that everyone is a participant in the review and is encouraged to say something if they see something.

It centers around active listening and situational awareness.  Everyone brings something to the table and shares.
