Networking Breakfast - June 24

Is your staff and facility prepared for the unthinkable?

Potential violence in the workplace is becoming an area of concern.  Please join us for a lockdown/active shooter training session featuring recent PDC speaker Don Argo of Pella Corporation in Pella, Iowa.  Pella Corp developed training sessions for their employees in 2012 for a LockDown Process and Active Shooter Training to protect team members from potential threat and how to respond when faced with either scenario.  This networking event will review when there is a potential threat to your employees and property, warning level codes, processes, and procedures.  If you have been waiting for a stimulating presentation, then you wont want to miss this one!

IISC's Online Video Streaming - Video Highlight

Complacency - We’ve all heard the word. We’ve been warned about it. 

Butch Evans never thought he was complacent about his safety. But we’ll never know what he was thinking during the safety meeting on Lock-out Tag-out. We’ll never know because 30 minutes after the meeting, Butch was dead.

In this dramatic heart felt video, Butch’s mother, Sandy, tells the tragic story of the loss of her son. She tells this story to help save others from the heart break she came to know the day Butch was killed on the job.
