The Comp Alliance will be hosting a webinar for members on August 28, 2020 discussing the following topics:

  • Updates on the most recent State Re-Opening Guidelines - From NYS Education Department and the CDC, plus guidance from FDA on restricted products
  • Comp Alliance Risk Management Training Options - Virtual Training Mondays and Beyond!
  • Is your Staff and are your Customers Conforming with your New Normal policies - and what can be done (safely) if they are not?
  • Question and Answer Session

This webinar will be offered via Zoom video conferencing and continue a series of programs offered by the Comp Alliance Risk Management Department. During this program, we will review the processes our members have developed for re-opening, including the latest NYS guidelines and CDC recommendations – as well as review information from the Food and Drug Administration regarding prohibited products that should not be used in your operations, and why. We will update the newest Risk Management training program – weekly Virtual Training programs and how to get your staff scheduled for these training programs! An issue some members are discussing with out risk management staff is the concern when staff refuse to follow the new COVID-19 protection guidelines and what can your municipality do to correct these situations. The same might be true for customers, as they could effect the health and welfare of your staff. We’d also like to hear from our members and address any comments and questions you might have regarding this process or any safety-related questions – our Risk Management staff will be on-line to provide answers.  .
