The University of Wisconsin–Platteville in conjunction with construction industry partners are hosting the first annual Construction Safety Summit for construction safety professionals at any stage in their career, as well as manufacturers and distributors in the safety field. Outside of the training and seminar sessions, our opening and closing receptions and social events throughout the week allow professionals to network with those in the construction safety industry. Participants can also connect with UW-Platteville students seeking internships or full-time job opportunities.
