Environmental Health & Safety Crisis Management: Legal and Technical Perspectives on Planning and Response

Join King & Spalding for a panel discussion with emergency response investigators from the IFO Group as we examine critical issues frequently faced following serious industrial accidents and emergencies. The highest-profile and costliest investigations of industrial facilities by environmental, health and safety (EHS) agencies commonly occur following fires, explosions, large chemical spills and releases, and other serious emergencies. Key topics include:

  • Key elements of conducting privileged, turnkey incident investigations designed to identify root cases and implement corrective actions
  • Regulatory concerns that inevitably arise in these situations, and likely changes in the Biden Administration’s approach to potential civil and criminal enforcement
  • Intertwined and imperative insurance issues posed by these emergency situations

Considering these critical issues in advance of a crisis will help prepare corporate attorneys, compliance professionals and outside counsel to respond to these emergencies if and when they arise.
