Jan. 13, 2020, Carrollton, Ga. – Crane Industry Services will introduce its Leading Safety Works certification program for construction and utilities managers at ConExpo-Con/Agg, in Las Vegas, Nev., March 10-14, 2020.

Developed in partnership with Okos, a business and people strategies consultant, Leading Safety Works is designed to train construction and utilities leaders in the art and discipline of engaging teams in workplace safety. Grounded in coaching, storytelling, and case-study application, Leading Safety Works features practical tools that foster safety and continuous improvement, guide productivity, and protect profits. Leading Safety Works delivers 90-day outcomes that track with the overall project strategic plan.

It utilizes a replicable framework that addresses for key questions: What is the state of the safety culture? How are we engaging teams? What’s the plan for change? How will we implement the plan?

Leaders will learn how to make critical connections between project and people strategies, how to identify opportunities to change and improve safety practices, how to involve teams in decisions and communications, and how to create accountability.


After earning a Leading Safety Works certification, leaders maintain access to coaches and a continuous learning environment.

As a workforce development specialist, serving construction, crane operations, the utility industry, and manufacturing, CIS offers programs for both employees and corporate managers. They help workers achieve credentials and assist employers with documentation of employee qualifications.

In addition, during the show, CIS will give interactive demonstrations utilizing Vortex Simulators from CM Labs Simulations.

Visit CIS in the Festival Hall booth F101524, where they are co-located with Cranes 101. Crane Industry Services is an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor for Cranes 101.
