Beginning in December, and continuing throughout 2015, AEGIS Loss Control will broadcast a one-hour webinar each month that will focus on a topic related to electric and natural gas utility inspections, maintenance or safety programs. Subject matter experts from AEGIS member companies and AEGIS Loss Control professionals will lead these live events and answer your questions in real time. Each webinar will be recorded and posted to the AEGIS Loss Control area of our website for viewing at later dates.
Please register now for the webinar on Friday, December 5, which will cover electric substation physical security measures. Participants will learn about options for hardening the substation perimeter, including enhanced security fencing, anti-ram barriers and ballistic protection. The webinar will also cover new technology used to detect removal of grounding infrastructure from a substation site and provide remote alarms that help minimize the safety, operational, and service reliability impacts of copper theft and unauthorized entry. The webinar is scheduled from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time.
