Occupational Health & Safety VIRTUAL EVENT 2011

Feb. 16, 2011, OH&S Virtual Event 2011

The scope and sheer number of emergencies affecting U.S. companies is almost overwhelming. Nashville's floods in spring 2010 caused more than 65,000 Tennesseans to register for $260 million in disaster assistance from FEMA and the Small Business Administration. Major disaster declarations resulting from storms, tornadoes, flooding, and landslides this year alone have affected more than 30 states. Fires, medical emergencies, and even pandemic flu are contingencies for which every enterprise must be prepared.

On Feb. 16, 2011, join OH&S Editor Jerry Laws, our sponsoring companies, and leading experts on preparing and responding to emergencies of all kinds for a full day of live presentations, real-time dialogue with product suppliers and other professionals in your field, and a chance to win valuable prizes.
