United Rentals’ Norty Turner, senior vice president, services and advanced solutions, will kick off the ALH Conference on Oct. 23 with a keynote speech that discusses lessons learned by the rental giant during Covid-19.
“The Covid-19 pandemic brought on unique challenges and unveiled new opportunities to operationalize and focus additional efforts as a team to ensure safe, efficient and flexible solutions,” Turner told ALH. “Safety has always been part of our DNA, but now, more than ever, companies are looking for that added assurance. With some agility, focus and a constant dedication to safety, United Rentals updated the safety playbook to guide the team through the pandemic and keep employees, customers and communities safe and on track.”
United created nine key protocols at the core of its response to Covid-19, and ALH Conference attendees can expect to hear what worked and can be implemented into their own operations. Following Turner’s talk, attendees will have the opportunity for a Q&A session.
Registration is free, and those interested can do so via this link.
