The programs include:

  oComplying with new OSHA rules to avoid discrimination against workers who
    report injuries
  oImproving risk management programs in the transportation industry.
  oDealing with the challenging issues of "green" construction and LEED
    building standards.
  oQuantifying a firm's supply chain risk.

OSHA Program Discrimination, Monday, April 22, 3:45 p.m.
Michael Davis, Senior Vice President and Risk Control Consultant with Lockton
in Houston, will present Is Your OSHA Program Discriminatory? with Dr.
MaryRose Reaston, PhD, founder of Emerge Diagnostics, and Dave Keyser,
Director of Risk Management from CR England Trucking, on Monday, April 22 at
3:45 p.m.

In a recent memo, OSHA warned that using safety incentives or taking
disciplinary action against workers who report injuries is potentially
discriminatory. Often, the goal of safety incentives is to discourage
reporting of false claims through the use of peer pressure or team
rewards.This session will offer attendees best practice solutions for
creating a program that does not discourage reporting injuries and promotes
engaging employees in continuous improvement.

Dr. Reaston will share how Baseline Electro Diagnostic Functional Assessment
(EFA) Testing has been successful in reducing overall claims, particularly
false worker's compensation claims. Keyser will discuss the implementation of
Baseline EFA Testing at CR England and how it has helped achieve injury
reduction goals for new hires.

Transportation Risk Management, Tuesday, April 23, 9:00 a.m.
Charlie Cartwright, Claims Cost Control Consultant with Lockton in Kansas
City, has partnered with Todd Allen, Vice President of Risk Management for
Kenan Advantage Group to present about the Transportation Industry on Tuesday,
April 23 at 9 a.m.

The presentation will address the ever-changing needs of the industry,
including growing losses due to workers' compensation claims, keeping up with
changing state and federal regulations, handling cargo claims, and facing auto
and general liability lawsuits. Cartwright will focus on practical
return-to-work strategies for injured workers.

Challenges of Green Construction, Tuesday, April 23, 10:15 a.m.
On Tuesday at 10:15 a.m., Matt Lumelleau with Lockton in Denver will present
Green Construction: Beyond the LEED-ing Edge, New Performance Standards along
with Stephen Grossmark, Partner at Tressler LLP, and James McInerney, Vice
President of Field Operations at Leopardo Companies.

Green construction can bring with it new short- and long-term risks for a
construction company unaware of its strict codes and standards. During this
presentation, Grossmark will focus on three areas that make up the foundation
of green building: green construction standards, green construction rating
systems, and model green codes. McInerney will discuss sustainable design,
construction, and operation. Lumelleau will offer insurance solutions and risk
management strategies for the industry.

Supply Chain Risks, Wednesday, April 24, 9 a.m.
On the final day of the conference, Wednesday, April 24 at 9 a.m., Lockton New
York's Senior Vice President Susan Johnson will present with Susan Ciliberti,
Director of Risk Management for Pitney Bowes, and John Dempsey of Dempsey
Partners.

Their presentation, How to Quantify Your Company's Supply Chain Risk shares
results from an in-depth analysis conducted over 2 years that drilled down to
examine significant supply chain exposures and offer more certainty for the
quantification of those exposures. They will discuss how their analysis held
up after an international natural disaster impacted the supply chain.
