Morning Breakout Session
August 12, 2020
 10:30AM - 12:00PM

Coronavirus may have stolen the headlines over the past year, but there is always page 2.  Before Coronavirus, transportation and agricultural safety emergencies took the spotlight, a spotlight no one wants.  What do you do when confronted with a major safety emergency, often with no warning?  Grain bin explosions, semi accidents, major chemical leaks, worker health emergencies, engulfment, a fall... this interactive workshop puts attendees right in the thick-of-it with real-life experts in the room to facilitate.  Your response can mean the difference between life and death.  Learn what resources you need to activate the best response possible in the not-so-happy headlines.

 Breakout Facilitator:  Jim Seibert, National Grain and Feed Association
