Today’s infrastructure workforce is aging and in need of repair and replacement. Not just to backfill jobs as many retire, but to also provide the critical knowledge transfer from the highly trained and deeply experienced employees to the new workforce.

Finding and providing these qualified workers is becoming more and more difficult, bringing great risk to employers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that more than 6 million jobs are currently unfilled, with skilled-labor jobs taking the biggest hit. Not having enough employees and/or quality employees can pose a safety risk in the workplace.
