We are pleased to announce that many of the AEGIS Loss Control educational and training videos have been moved to the public side of the website. A password is no longer required to view the videos, so member company employees who work in the field now have easy access to these valuable resources. We encourage you to share this news with your colleagues working in the field.
We send Quick Tips and AEGIS News ― plus the new quarterly Loss Control publication, Perspectives ― to help ensure we remain fully engaged with you during these unprecedented times. These publications, along with the frequently refreshed content on our new website, provide the information, products and services you need to navigate the global pandemic and constricting commercial insurance markets.
There are now more than 50 AEGIS Loss Control videos that can be accessed directly from the home page. The newly refreshed AEGIS site was built with responsive website design so the navigation and viewing experience is optimized for mobile phones, tablets and laptops. The videos are organized according to electric operations, natural gas operations and emergency responders, and they are designed to help members maintain safe and reliable operations.
The Lessons Learned® videos are extremely valuable, and they help increase public safety awareness among electric and natural gas operating employees. These 10- to 12-minute videos reenact incidents associated with either an electric or natural gas utility system, and they focus on various topics, including the call center, troubleshooters, natural gas leak investigation, public safety awareness, and the first responders who partner with utilities for incident response and mitigation. Each video provides important lessons that may help prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future. The Lessons Learned® videos can be used for shape up, safety or tailboard meetings, or during your company's safety day. They are also frequently used in apprentice or refresher training programs. (If you used these videos in the past for training, please update the links in your training materials because they changed when the videos were made public.)
The library of AEGIS Loss Control videos can be viewed directly from the home page ― just look for the "AEGIS Videos" section, and go to View Loss Control Videos.
AEGIS Loss Control also hosts monthly webinars on topics of interest pertaining to electric, natural gas, property and boiler machinery plant operations and renewable generation. These one-hour webcasts are geared to risk managers, as well as engineering, operating, safety and training personnel, and they cover a variety of safety, inspection and maintenance practices.
The webinars are conducted live, usually on the first Wednesday of each month, and then posted to the website. There are now more than 60 AEGIS Loss Control webinars posted, and they can be viewed anytime, at your convenience, from a mobile phone, tablet or laptop. Yesterday, more than 170 member company employees attended the November webinar — Pipeline Safety Management & Public Safety Awareness. The next webinar — Methane Detectors: A Utility's Project Update — is scheduled for December 2. Registration will open soon.
Most of the webinars are password-protected at the request of our third-party presenters, but there are a number of public webinars that cover topics such as: Public Safety Messages — Return on Investment; Natural Gas Operator Training; Safety Issues: Rooftop Solar Panels; and The Electric Risk Assessment Process and Its Impact on Public Safety.
Along with making many of our webinars and videos publicly available, we have made granting access to our password-protected webinars as easy as possible — all you need is your business e-mail address.
