Our Next Meeting

Safety Issues in the Media Industry

CBS Corporation

Guest Speaker: Mark Perriello

Our August 5, 2014 meeting will focus on Mark Perriello's experiences with safety related issues in the media industry. As CBS Corporation's Director of Safety and Health, Mark has a vast amount of experience in this field (see his Bio, below).

Mark will talk about the importance of communications regarding safety issues to employees, contractors, and among multiple departments within an organization. He'll discuss the role that you play when contractors are on your site and review the ability to recognize the importance of well documented regulations, references, and preventive measures.  Additionally, he'll spend some time telling us about similar safety and health issues in all industries.

We'll serve sandwiches and soda at 6:00 PM, discuss a bit of Chapter business about 6:45 and begin our meeting at 7:00 PM.  Dinner is being sponsored by Cavell, Mertz & Associates, Inc.
