    Medical providers often have to make judgment decisions during delivery on how long the mother's labor should last. New recommendations within the past 10 years have significantly altered this calculus. This program will address these new medical guidelines for protracted labor and discuss the legal implications the guidelines have on defending medical providers about the labor curve, including tips for deposing witnesses, how to gather and use expert testimony in this area and more.

    The registration is $75 for DRI members and $150 for non-members.

    Often referred to as the “Silent Killer,” carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas that can cause incapacitation and death in only a few minutes. It is produced by the incomplete burning of carbon-based fuels, such as natural gas, propane, or gasoline, and can be generated by many common sources, including motor vehicles, engine-driven tools, and home heating systems.

    This webinar will cover typical issues that arise in litigation involving CO poisoning and the different analytical, experimental, and numerical tools available to address these issues. Through case studies, the presenters will examine the following: the most common causes of CO fatalities; necessary conditions to cause the formation of CO as well as dispersion and accumulation of CO; and the codes, standards, and regulations that govern CO detection and products and equipment that can generate CO.

    The second webinar in the series will be coming soon. Sign up to get notified when this webinar is scheduled.

    The second webinar in the series will address actions coming from the executive branch. On March 1, 2022, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) submitted a “final rule” for Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) and Certain Civil Money Penalties to the White House Office of Regulatory Information and Affairs (OIRA) for review and approval. This “final rule” is anticipated to be the long-awaited final rule regarding Section 111 reporting penalties.

    Join us for a discussion of the history of the civil monetary penalty rule, how the government may apply reporting penalties, defenses to government penalties and a discussion of the changes that may be coming. The time to get informed is now! The “final rule” could take effect 30-60 days after publication.

    DRI and MARC (a national coalition of companies and other stakeholders with an interest in the Medicare Secondary Payer "MSP" Program) have partnered for over 10 years to bring attention to, build solutions for compliance with, and improve the MSP program.

    When a workplace injury or fatality involves a product, the actions of both the employer and the product manufacturer are often scrutinized. Workers’ compensation laws forbid most injured workers from suing their employers, but claims against manufacturers of products used in the workplace are common. Such claims often raise complex questions about interactions between the product, the workplace, and the workers. These questions can involve product design, usability, marketing, warnings, instructions, and maintenance requirements, as well as workplace safety management systems.

    This presentation will discuss how human factors professionals with expertise in occupational safety and health can evaluate the conduct of employers, workers, contractors, and product manufacturers in these contexts, including illustrative case studies involving industrial equipment, control software, and chemical products.

    Presenters:
    Chason J. Coelho, Ph.D., CSP, CFI | Senior Managing Scientist | Exponent
    Julia K. Diebol, Ph.D., CSP, C.P.S.M. | Senior Scientist | Exponent

    This webinar is free for DRI members and non-members.
