Our August 5, 2014 meeting focused 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 talked about the importance of communications regarding safety issues to employees, contractors, and among multiple departments within an organization. He also discussed the role that engineers play when contractors are on site.  Some time was spent reviewing the importance of well documented regulations, references, and preventive measures.  Additionally, he told us about similar safety and health issues in all industries.

Sandwiches and soda were served at 6:00 PM, discuss a bit of Chapter business about 6:45 and begin our meeting at 7:00 PM.  Dinner was sponsored by Cavell, Mertz & Associates, Inc.
