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

People don’t come to work planning on being injured or even working unsafely. Yet everyday, hundreds of people are injured and killed at work. Often because they gave up control of their safety.   

This safety video shows how we need to prevent outside forces like time, emotions, peer pressure or distractions from taking control of our safety.
