TAMPA, Fla. - August 4, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Infrastructure Resources LLC, a Minnesota-based company, announces Tampa, Florida, as the host of Global Excavation Safety Conference 2023.

In November 2021, the largest infrastructure bill in American history totaling $1.2 trillion was passed. This bill includes upgrades to roads, bridges, and public transportation, as well as a sizeable portion being allocated to our nation's utility infrastructure. According to the Washington Post, $240 billion of the bill will be allocated to utilities. This increased funding will increase excavation project volume, which will inevitably increase the likelihood of utility damages. According to the 2020 Damage Information Reporting Tool (DIRT) Report, there were 374,658 damages to buried utilities in the U.S., resulting in an estimated societal cost of approximately $30 billion. 

The Global Excavation Safety Conference is set to bring an estimated 900+ excavation safety industry professionals to Tampa, Florida, to tackle this issue. Global ESC has been the largest event in the excavation safety industry for the past 18 years and offers 80+ hours of educational content. With conference sessions, numerous networking events, and 80+ exhibitors, it is the place to be if you are committed to the mission of reducing damages and saving lives. After nearly two decades of listening to attendee feedback, fostering exhibitor relationships, and carefully cultivating a diverse educational program, 2023 promises to be the most robust event we have ever offered. From locator-specific workshops to panel-driven industry summits, Global ESC has value for everyone. Industry Summits include:

  • Electric Safety Summit
  • Excavator Perspective Summit
  • Fiber Optic Asset Protection Summit
  • Global Locate Summit
  • Notification Center Summit
  • Pipeline Safety & Awareness Summit
  • Water & Sewer Infrastructure Protection Summit

In honor of National 811 Day, the call-before-you-dig phone number in the United States, the conference is being offered at $811 through August 11, a 40% discount from the onsite price. For more details about Global ESC and to lock in the $811 rate, visit GlobalExcavationSafetyConference.com before August 12.

Vertical Harvest Makes Fast Company’s Fourth Annual List of the Best Workplaces for Innovators Diverse Innovators List

The urban vertical farming company joins Microsoft, T-Mobile, Adobe, PayPal, and many others in the Fast Company September 2022 awards issue

JACKSON, Wyo. - August 3, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

Fast Company announced its fourth annual Best Workplaces for Innovators list, honoring organizations and businesses that demonstrate a steadfast commitment to encouraging innovation at all levels. Vertical Harvest is a finalist in the Diverse Innovators category for its Grow Well employment program designed for accessibility and hiring practices developed for people with neurodiversity and disabilities. 

Developed in collaboration with Accenture, the 2022 Best Workplaces for Innovators ranks 100 winners from a variety of industries, including computer science, biotech, consumer packaged goods, nonprofit, education, financial services, cybersecurity, engineering, diversity, sustainability, B2B, and consumer products and services. Fast Company editors and Accenture researchers worked together to score nearly 1,500 applications, and a panel of eight eminent judges reviewed and endorsed the top 100 companies. 

Vertical Harvest is proud to operate an integrated workforce (50/50) of people with and without disabilities under the umbrella of its Grow Well employment resources. This innovative approach to customized employment represents a profound rethinking of recruiting, hiring, training and retaining employees and making the labor market more inclusive and accessible. By designing jobs around an individual's unique abilities and resourcing appropriate accommodations, positive work experiences can become a reality for people who are often excluded from building meaningful careers. By understanding what people need to be at their best, everyone can show up and work better, together — which presents an incredible opportunity to make the fast-growing Controlled Environment Agriculture industry more accessible and equitable. CEA represents a $4 billion engine for green jobs that can't be offshored and hold the promise to revitalize local food economies and increase nutrition security for urban communities.

Vertical Harvest CEO and co-founder Nona Yehia said, "One example of innovation was led by our General Manager Chris Hogberg and two of our differently abled employees Sean and Kai. The team redesigned an area in our greenhouse known as 'Comp5' to double the growing space we previously had for petites and microgreens and generate 2x the yields in two-thirds of the space. With their ideas for design, they drove crop density much higher and optimized growing time with a new approach to lighting and climate control. Additionally, they created improvements in the ergonomic experience for our workers which has made the harvesting and packaging operations even more efficient. Sean, who identifies as having a developmental disability and came to us as a full-time dishwasher, is now one of five or six people in the country with this kind of CEA systems design expertise. We believe that when we focus on ability vs disability, the sky's the limit."

Fast Company's Best Workplaces for Innovators issue (September 2022) is now online: https://www.fastcompany.com/best-workplaces-for-innovators/list. The print issue will be on newsstands Aug. 16, 2022.
