Expo Testimonials

Attendees’ Own Words:

“Construction has gotten so complex and regulated that companies can only succeed when they know the rules of the game.  For the cost of a night at the races, contractors can get what they need over three short days and be ready to work profitably all year – Contractors get top quality information, spend time with people who speak their language, and save a bucket of money.  It’s like being at a sports bar with 25 big screens tuned to different games, and all the food and beverages are priced as if it’s 1978.  Contractors can hear in three short days what takes me all year to write about in our Newsletter articles.”

Everyone associated with the construction industry understands that our business can be extremely dangerous. Whether working in excavation; at extreme heights erecting steel; building our highways or building homes; our workers are always at risk of being injured. However, we also understand that the industry can be made much safer when our workers are properly trained and educated. To that end, the Sacramento Builders Exchange has developed a truly unique event that provides safety training and education to all construction workers. The Safety Expo offers a comprehensive training and education curriculum that’s presented by some of the country’s most knowledgeable trainers. Further, the Expo incorporates a trade show element where employers and workers alike have access to safety suppliers, manufacturers, and other safety related stake holders. We appreciate having access to such a great program and look forward to attending the next Expo.”

“I find the Expos to be very informative and rewarding – I don’t believe that you can find an event that has the quality of training anywhere for the cost of these Expos. The training topics are all pertinent to the construction industry, and all the presentations I have attended have been motivating and to the point. I would recommend the Expo to anyone in any trade – there is something for everyone no matter if they are just starting out in their profession or if they have been at it for decades.  I drive over 350 miles to attend these Expos and look forward to them every year!”

Mark McKaughan, Safety Director

“This Expo was extremely professional and delivered quality trainings and seminars from reputable instructors.  The supporting staff was knowledgeable and helpful.  The highlight of the Expo was in my opinion the seminar “View from the Top” where the directors from the Caloifornia Department of labor and Cal/OSHA provided valuable insight. Thank you for hosting an incredible event.”

Brian Crets, HSE Specialist – PGP International®

“The Safety Training & Construction Management Expo has turned out to be a great venue for 3M to both offer training for our end users and show new products to a diverse group of customers.  I highly recommend this event for companies who are looking to bring their safety training programs up to speed.  I also recommend this event for safety vendors who have a product or service they are tooking to showcase.”

Chuck Perry, 3M Occupational Health and Safety Division

“Each class had great speakers with years of experience. I appreciated the extra time they spent after the class to address specific questions. All shared their material with those who submitted business cards. Those of us who are in the safety profession gained ideas on future presentations. I hope to have my entire staff attend next year.”

Stephen Danner, CSP, Supervisor, Northern California Region Risk Management Services

I was impressed with the organization and preparation that goes into the Safety Expo and how many informative exhibitors were present – I enjoyed the enthusiasm with which the presenters delivered their message.  I received far more than expected!”
