Orlando, FL, June 17, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Three national workers’ compensation experts will present “Emerging Exposures: It’s Always Something” at the August 19-23 Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
Panel Moderator John Santulli is Executive Vice President of Risk Services and Sales at PMA Insurance Group in Blue Bell, Penn. He will be joined by panel members James P. Ryan, Executive Vice President of Sedgwick in Marlton, N.Jj.; and Misty Hambright, Senior Analyst at American Airlines in Ft. Worth, Texas.
The experts will discuss the most significant emerging exposures in the workers’ compensation arena, drawing on their own professional experience at their individual companies as well as data and commentary from a broader perspective encompassing trends in their respective fields. Most importantly, the presenters will address the problems and challenges of these emerging exposures from three different perspectives: The insurance company, which must price out the exposures using predictive modeling and other modalities; the employer, who must take a pro-active approach to the exposures that could most significantly impact the safety of his employees; and the risk manager and claims professional, who must guide companies and injured employees through the claims and risk process in what may be unchartered waters.
The CEU-accredited session will be presented from 1:00 to 2:00 pm on Tuesday, August 21.
