Plan B – When First Responders are Delayed (Basic) Philip Heavilin, CFM, Facilities Manager, Shiawassee Health & Wellness.

Preparing for the unthinkable: a violent intruder. What if first responders are delayed? Do you have a back-up plan? This session brainstorms practices and “engineered controls” designed to slow down an intruder buying time for law enforcement. Presented by a professional facilities manager who finds himself thrust into the world of emergency management, his session will offer ideas for minor, and often inexpensive modifications to existing assets that slow an intruder down as they attempt to spread harm.

1:45 pm
Cyber-Sense:  Awareness & Preparation (Basic-Advanced) Jeff Hoffman, Detective Sergeant, Michigan State Police.

The Michigan Cyber Command Center (MC3) will discuss the current cyber threat landscape and what organizations should consider prior to a cyber-related incident affecting their systems.

3:15 pm
Working Through Risk: An Engaging Risk Management Model for Dynamic Industry (Intermediate)  Wyatt Bradbury, CSP, ASP, CHST, CIT, HSE Advisor, Hitachi Rail.

One of the greatest challenges as professionals is bridging the gap between work as imagined and work as done.  The best laid plans and organized hazard analyses tend to see extensive field modification without ever putting that back in the original terms of the risk matrix or circling back to make the analysis a true living document.  This model seeks to present approaches to high level and localized level hazard analyses in the scope of a process that can be used to close the gap and empower our employees to make appropriate risk calculations.  Additional risk management considerations beyond the mere probability and severity will be discussed in addition to the various tools that can be used to help gather the information that will contribute to a comprehensive high level and local level collection of data for analysis.
