Engineering Management Institute Podcast  

GPRS's cutting-edge methodology and industry leading service lines and their importance in the engineering sector spilled over onto the airwaves most recently with an engaging feature of our President and CEO, Matt Aston, on the Engineering Management Institute Podcast. This podcast, known for content that enriches the engineering community with leadership, management, and personal development solutions, featured how GPRS services provide cost-effective solutions for various engineering applications.

Our various service lines, including video pipe inspection, 3D laser scanning, leak detection, utility locating, and concrete scanning were all discussed, and how they help engineers around the country eliminate reworks, budget overruns, and downtime on site. Aston shared the origin story of GPRS and our growth strategy and also took time to discuss our industry leading utility mapping software SiteMap® and how it is the next phase of evolution for GPRS as a whole. This episode delivered insightful conversation around GPRS's impact on project management and site safety, fitting well with the podcast's mission to foster the growth and development of engineers and technical professionals across all disciplines.

The essential workplace safety source, Industrial Safety & Hygiene News (ISHN), took a look at GPRS’ industry emphasis on how to protect yourself from silicosis on a job site. Topics included the millions of constructions workers who have already been exposed to silica in the workforce, the morbid effects of respirable crystalline silica (RCS) if not avoided, and the opportunity to prevent silicosis altogether through proper precautions put into place when working with or around concrete. Concrete Sawing and Drilling Safety Week discusses this topic and many more in depth, allowing each attendee to develop a personal safety plan when cutting, coring or drilling through concrete to further mitigate the risks posed by RCS. The timely discussion on safety protocols resonates with ISHN's drive to keep the workforce informed on crucial safety news and strategies, thus playing a crucial role in safeguarding industry personnel.

Finally, the Risk Management Brick by Brick by Trust Layer podcast became a platform for GPRS President and CEO, Matt Aston to discuss the emerging risks in construction and how modern technology such as SiteMap® can help mitigate them. Our origin story is briefly shared, and our abilities to help Risk Managers from all around the country within the construction industry mitigate damages on job sites is discussed. The shift in our customers’ approach to subsurface damage prevention in the past 20 years has been progressive. Many clients now call us before they dig or excavate, where before, most calls came in after damages had already occurred on site.

This shift to a proactive mindset, has led to a decrease in damages, an increase in job site safety, and a greater relational impact to the construction industry due to the various services we provide. This episode displays how pivotal risk mitigation is to our clients to protect their reputation in the field, and the role data collection and distribution within SiteMap® can help enhance risk mitigation for years to come.  Join, Jason Reichl and Matt Aston as they discuss GPRS’s industry expertise with the podcast's goal of elevating the understanding of risk management technologies in the construction industry by watching the full episode below.
