17 Gaps That Sabotage Your Emergency Plans: How To Fill Them

Security & Safety In Facilities

Learn the 17 gaps that can sabotage your emergency plans today and how to fill them. Sandy Hook, Aurora, CO, and Hurricane Sandy emphasize that emergency planning for your organization is subject to many federal, state and local laws, regulations and standards. Most who are tasked with creating and maintaining emergency plans are confused or overwhelmed regarding those standards. Learn what laws, regulations and standards apply to your emergency planning, training and exercises. Learn what a lawsuit will do to you if you don’t create a plan to standard.

In this session, you will learn the laws, regulations and standards that control emergency plans; how lawsuits will affect you and your organization; the overriding attitude for managers in re-evaluating current planning; how your own employees and clients can hurt your response to a disaster; and what to expect by way of help from local municipalities.


Creating An Energy Management Roadmap

Charting a course for your facilities’ energy strategy can be complex, from establishing a long-term plan to monitoring day-to-day efficiencies. This moderated panel discussion will focus on several important areas for energy management today, including gathering energy data; maximizing building automation and energy management systems; moving to net zero energy and renewable energy; and pursuing financing and incentive programs.


Impact Of Workplace Design

Facility management decisions are key to creating workplaces conducive to the needs (and wants) of the employees who work in their buildings. A parallel focus is often to keep real estate costs in check. As more organizations recognize the impact of facilities on employee recruitment and retention, real estate and operating costs, and reputation, facility executives are front and center in delivering spaces that work.


Project Management/Construction

New construction and major renovations require project teams to take a holistic view of the project requirements and life cycle. Facility management professionals are key players in this process. Drawing on their experiences, panelists in this session will discuss strategies they’ve implemented to ensure successful outcomes.
