Upcoming webinars


Topic: Industry - Little Failures, Big Losses

Presented by Nicolas Geoffroy, P.Eng., Ph.D.
Equipment and machinery failures are common to many organizations, but in an industrial context, the results of a failure can be disastrous. 

This webinar will provide an overview of typical industrial losses involving materials. Using anecdotes and case studies, we will take a look at typical industrial losses which can result in substantial losses in machinery, and often time, even greater loss of production. We will also review the investigative process and visit protocols, and finally provide advice to adjusters and on-site responders.

Topic: Vehicle Data - the black box and now so much more

Vehicles have been recording data related to collisions for a long time, but over the past few decades the data has advanced, and the number of vehicles that record data has increased significantly, especially in the last few years. 

In this webinar, we'll discuss what has changed in the "black boxes" of passenger vehicles, but also look at other sources of data. Finally we will talk about the latest data that has become accessible, which can give an unprecedented detailed look at what you and your vehicle are doing.

Time: 12:00 to 12:30 EDT

Date: To be confirmed    

Topic: Slips and trips go far beyond 'Oops'

Slips and falls are the leading cause of death in the workplace, the number one cause of accidents in hotels, restaurants and public buildings, and account for over half of all disabling injuries. What are the common hazards? What contributes to a slip, trip or fall? How is an occupier liable, and what factors do the courts consider? We go through the biomechanics of the human gait, the details on how an investigation works, and what to look for throughout an investigation.
