What if…

…a tornado happens?  …a car crashes into your lobby?  …a domestic dispute spills into your plant?  …there is a hazardous material accident?

Whether it’s a natural disaster or man-made, it is an unfortunate reality that employers need to have a plan in place to manage the unexpected. The IMA is planning a comprehensive program that will take members through the steps to better prepare for the unexpected – and reassure their employees in uncertain times. Prepare… Respond… Getting Back to Work! will allow participants to learn the latest best practices to protect their personnel and create a clear action plan for their workplace. CEOs, HR directors and safety professionals are invited and encouraged to bring additional members of their team as well.

Attendees will receive a sample Emergency Plan to personalize during the day.

We encourage bringing your planning team for maximum value!

Creating a Safety-First Environment: The Need for a Plan

Aaron Gelb  |  Conn Maciel Carey LLP, Chicago

  • Aaron will discuss when Emergency Action Plans are required & what they must include. Aaron will also cover key considerations with respect to certain types of emergencies such as fire, earthquakes, tornados and perhaps of particular interest to Illinois employers, extreme cold weather. While some emergencies may be entirely unexpected, many can be anticipated, which can help employers and workers plan for even the most challenging situations. There are several OSHA standards that address emergency planning requirements, and which require employers to develop emergency action plans.

Active Shooter & First Responders

Commander Tad A. Williams  |  Macon County Law Enforcement Training Center

  • The importance of employee and staff training is essential to all businesses. Aside from day to day operations, emergency planning is essential. This presentation will touch on the importance of a company’s preparedness and reference guide, particularly work place violence and/or active shooter incidents. Can you plan for an emergency? What to do in such a situation? How do we communicate and coordinate with first responders? The presentation will open the door for further discussion and assist employer’s in developing protocols, as well as suggested training for employees.
