Doylestown, PA (PRWEB) August 24, 2013
Carrying on its mission to develop a body of knowledge for the demolition industry, the National Demolition Association has posted videos online of the major educational presentations made at its 2013 convention. The videos, covering the educational topics of disaster response, occupational safety and health, environmental stewardship, and business management, are available at http://www.demolitionassociation.com.
“As a trade organization, we are committed through our Education Initiative to providing our members with the tools necessary to be leaders in professional competency,” said Michael R. Taylor, CAE, Executive Director. “We’ve decided to share our presentations not only with the NDA members who couldn’t attend the convention, but also with others who are involved in the demolition process, such as general contractors, civil engineering firms, and recycling operations.”
The presentations from the 40th Anniversary Convention-- found in the "Our Industry" section of the website under the topic "Disaster Response" -- include:
NDA’s Taylor noted that the development of the new video section is just one of a series of steps undertaken under the Education Initiative. Other highlights include the development of the nation’s first demolition specialization at Purdue University; the development and publication of the nation’s first demolition textbook now is use at Purdue; and full revisions of the NDA Demolition Safety Manual, the HazCom Manual, and the Demolition Safety Talks program.
