AUSTIN GREEN AWARDS
Free Virtual Event "FULFILLING THE PROMISE OF SUSTAINABILITY"
WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2020
4:30 PM - 6:00 PM Central Time
The 2020 Austin Green Awards FREE Virtual Event "FULFILLING THE PROMISE OF SUSTAINABILITY" will kick off with a retrospective of the Award's first four years, followed by a panel conversation.
2020 has indelibly influenced how we approach our work and everyday lives, revealed deep-rooted inequities, and amplified real-world challenges associated with race and class that define our realities.
The Austin Green Awards provides a platform that can shed some light on these issues. With social distancing requirements in effect, we are pivoting from our annual awards celebration to a free virtual event that everyone can attend from anywhere.

Introduction to PCRA/ICRA
Thursday, December 3rd
3:00 PM - 4:00 PMVirtual meeting opens 10 minutes prior to starting
About the Event:
To proactively address capital project construction risks, The Joint Commission requires a Pre-construction Risk Assessment (PCRA) for all planned and unplanned healthcare construction. PCRA is the umbrella for Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA), as well as other healthcare construction risks that include noise, vibration, odors, security, maintenance, life safety, ventilation, utility systems, medical equipment, storing, transporting and delivering supplies and materials, and waste management.
Demand for healthcare facility construction continues to rise. Hospitals and other healthcare facility owners seek workers who have proven familiarity with current best practices that will ensure healthcare construction delivery that protects the health and safety of patients, staff, workers, and the general public.
Learn how the PCRA/ICRA Certificate Program is designed to assist in meeting the intent and compliance requirements of the Joint Commission standard for healthcare facility demolition, construction, or renovation.
Grady O’Rear is founding President/CEO of Green Advantage, Inc., an international non-profit organization that credentials building-related practitioners in state-of-the-art sustainable and resilient building means, methods, materials and best practices.
