ISSA co-hosting emergency security preparedness workshop

LINCOLNWOOD, Ill. -- The tragic events of Sept. 11 have given rise for many industries to reevaluate how they maintain the security of their facilities and employees. This is especially true in the chemical industry, which is why ISSA and the Chemical Producers and Distributors Association (CPDA) will conduct the "Chemical and Pesticide Industry Emergency Security and Preparedness Workshop" on Feb. 7-8, 2002.

This day and a-half program provides practical direction based on existing guidance as well as takes a look at new legislative mandates that would create new responsibilities for industry. It will be held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel, 2799 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, Va., Thursday, Feb. 7, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Friday, Feb. 8, 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

This workshop will focus on general security issues that chemical related industries, such as the cleaning products industry, now face in the aftermath of September 11. The agenda for this workshop has been structured to provide companies with the tools and education necessary to make them less vulnerable to both internal and external threats, thereby maximizing the effectiveness of their security programs and minimizing any potential risks to the surrounding community.

The Chemical and Pesticide Industry Emergency Security and Preparedness Workshop will include such topics as:
EPA Initiatives on Chemical Emergency Preparedness
Special Precautions Related to the Transportation of Hazardous Materials
The Threats Posed by Industrial Chemical
Development of an Effective Site Security Plan
The Chemical Security Act of 2001

The Role of Antimicrobial Products and Bioterrorism

The CPDA-ISSA workshop also will feature public relations experts who will offer tips on how company executives should handle crisis situations, as well as a panel discussion of industry specialists who will outline steps that companies should take to enhance chemical facility site security.
