1:00 pm Critical Workplace Safety Issues from ATA's New Loss Prevention Director
Presented by Mike Brust, CDS, Director, Loss Prevention Arkansas Trucking Association

ATA is pleased to announce the addition of Mike Brust to its staff as the director of loss prevention with the primary responsibility in support of the Association's Self Insurers' Fund. In this presentation, Mike will review the most critical workplace safety issues that drive employee injuries and workers' compensation claims - and best practices to mitigate them. Mike brings a wealth of relevant experience to ATA, most recently serving in a similar position with Protective Insurance (aka Baldwin & Lyons), reviewing customers' safety programs and providing guidance and direction for improvement. He has also held the director of safety position for Southern Refrigerated Transport in Texarkana where he led successful compliance initiatives, and had a number of roles over more than 20 years at FedEx Freight in Harrison, with nearly a decade as a manager in their safety department. Arkansas Trucking Association members will know Mike from his previous service over several years to our Safety Managment Council, as well as the Truck Driving Championship Committee, with terms as chair of both.
