How to Build a Diverse, MultiGenerational Workforce Without
the Headache

Keaton Turner, Turner Mining Group;
Ami Gignac and Bronwyn Weaver,
Q4 Impact Group
Our industry workforce is changing
rapidly and diversity and inclusion are
now frequent topics of conversation. The
"my way or the highway" Baby Boomer
culture built the industry but it is now
often managed under the direction of
Gen-X and Millennial workers. How companies react to this shift will determine
their success in the next ten years.
Attracting and retaining a diverse, multigenerational workforce means breaking
through the old ways of communicating
and reinventing the work cultures at our
operations. Our own multi-generational
team of industry professionals (a Baby
Boomer, a Gen-Xer, and a Millennial) will
explore the best ways to communicate
and collaborate across generations so
that every member of your team contributes to a productive and positive
work environment.  The team will also
talk about what it's like on the frontline
and in management roles for young and
inexperienced employees, women, and
minorities. A frank and candid discussion will explore the best ways to attract
and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce while developing a deep bench of
committed workers.

safety issues and explain effective ways
to navigate them.

How to Institute a Cost-Effective
Community Relations Program

Quarry neighbors and the surrounding
community are subject to vibrations from
blasting, dust and truck traffic. Despite
these legitimate concerns, aggregates
operations are a net positive to the communities in which they operate. Learn
how to reach out to your neighbors - in
a cost-effective way - to help improve
the perception of your business.

How to Kill Safety
Culture Excellence

Producing the high-quality aggregates
required for today's construction needs
can be a challenge. Understanding
how screens and crushers work
together in a system can help
maximize performance and improve
profitability. This session will provide
a more thorough look into screening
technology and the different types
of screens offered. Attendees will
review the interaction between
screens and crushers and how that
affects production and gradation.
They will also walk away with a better
understanding of the types of screens
offered and how to choose the right
one for their application.

Stand Out in the Crowd - Creating
Workplace Differentiation to
Address Talent Shortages

Aggregate industry professionals face
unique obstacles that can lead to failed
safety programs and processes. If left
unidentified or allowed to linger by
management such challenges will
undoubtedly prevent an organization
from attaining and sustaining safety
and health excellence. This presentation
will identify potential obstacles to zeroincident performance, outline strategies for developing corrective action to

of differentiation will also be even more
critical in the future in finding, hiring,
engaging and keeping a talented workforce. Does your organization distinguish
itself from other employers and if so,
is the differentiation sustainable? This
session will help you gain a clearer understanding of a key missing ingredient in
many talent management strategies, better understand the critical importance
of workplace culture as a competitive
differentiator and evaluate traditional
versus new workplace differentiators in
your organization.

Brian Gareau, Brian Gareau Inc.
Every day organizations strive to find
new ways to attract, retain and grow
customer loyalty and market share. One
key strategy used is product/service differentiation. The concept of differentiation is simple but also challenging to
sustain - make your organization stand
out from otherwise similar competitors
in the marketplace. This same strategy

Any facility that mines, processes, or
handles aggregates will have dust, which
is important to mitigate. Much of a facility's dust is created at a belt conveyor
transfer point because material is in a
free fall and fines are exposed to air
flows. Many facilities try to combat this
dust with suppression systems that are
costly or make the fines more difficult
to handle. Collection and suppression
efforts are greatly enhanced at a transfer
point when design techniques are used
to reduce material free fall, seal transfer
points from air escaping, and slowing air
velocities to a speed that lets dust fall
out of suspension before it has a chance
to exit a skirted area. This presentation
will teach conveyor users how simple
mechanical techniques can make a significant impact on dust at a belt conveyor
transfer point. Attendees will learn how
they can design, repair or maintain new
or existing transfer points in a manner
that seals air in the skirted area until
that air can be slowed to a velocity that
no longer can carry dust. Examples and
successes of the techniques used will be
discussed.

Drilling and blasting are integral parts
of the total mining process and affect
many down-stream costs. This session
