The Webinar Includes:

  • Re-Opening Concerns and Updates
  • Review Summer Workplace Exposures
  • Fire Department and Police Department Exposures - Risk Management Plans
  • Followed by a Question and Answer session

With the majority of the state approved for Phase 1 Re-Opening, it’s a good time to see how the safety of our operations are progressing. During this Zoom video conference session, we will update our municipal members on the hazards associated with this increase in operations, review summer exposures for full-time and seasonal staff, look ahead at the Comp Alliance Risk Management Department’s plans for Fire and Police Department Exposures, and we will follow-up the entire program with a Question & Answer session with our Risk Management staff. Program members are invited to join us for this 45 minute discussion presented by Robert Blaisdell, Director of Loss Control for the Comp Alliance.

 

Comp Alliance members are invited to join the risk management department of the Comp Alliance for a live, video-conference training every Monday morning from 10:00 to Noon, to complete training conducted on three PESH mandated topics, which include Workplace Violence, Right-to-Know/Chemical Safety and Blood-borne Pathogens. 

These topics are required for municipal employees annually, so this live training is meant to comply with the NYS training requirements. The morning program will utilize Zoom, so sign-up and participation is easy, and since it’s live, attendee questions can be addressed! Spaces are limited so sign up in advance to ensure your spot. All attendees must pre-register by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. prior to the training.

This program will be offered as an alternative to on-site training during this period of social distancing and coronavirus restrictions. 

For the past two months, the majority of municipal operations have engaged in reduced roles, as the State of NewWebinar Image Returning to Municipal Operations York has been on PAUSE criteria. Soon perhaps we can look to establish an expansion in operations welcoming back employees and increasing established workloads.

The Comp Alliance Risk Management department is here to assist our municipal members in establishing new guidelines for re-opening services while easing social isolation in getting employees back to work. NYS has established a phased plan to re-open New York.

This webinar hosted by Robert Blaisdell, Comp Alliance Director of Risk Management reviews the plan, municipal requirements from the plan and our loss prevention recommendations as well, all for the protection of your employees and the public health.
