Keynote: Lessons Learned from the Station Nightclub Fire Investigation
On February 20, 2003, 462 unsuspecting nightclub patrons found themselves in the midst of the fourth-deadliest club fire in U.S. history at a roadhouse in West Warwick, Rhode Island, called “The Station.” The final death toll topped out, three months later, at the eerily unlikely round number of 100. John Barylick, attorney for the victims and author of Killer Show - The Station Nightclub Fire, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert, will tell the story of the fire, its causes, and its legal and human-tragedy aftermath. He’ll share lessons learned about how we can break the “chain of causation” and work together to prevent similar catastrophes. John Barylick is an attorney who represented victims in numerous wrongful death and personal injury cases arising from the Station nightclub fire. His work over seven years was instrumental in amassing 176 million dollars in settlements from persons and corporations responsible for the fire. He’s also a frequent lecturer at medical and legal seminars and is the recipient of the 2006 Rhode Island Trial Lawyers Association Award for Professionalism.

Keynote: Lessons Learned from the Station Nightclub Fire Investigation

On February 20, 2003, 462 unsuspecting nightclub patrons found themselves in the midst of the fourth-deadliest club fire in U.S. history at a roadhouse in West Warwick, Rhode Island, called “The Station.” The final death toll topped out, three months later, at the eerily unlikely round number of 100. John Barylick, attorney for the victims and author of Killer Show – The Station Nightclub Fire, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert, will tell the story of the fire, its causes, and its legal and human-tragedy aftermath. He’ll share lessons learned about how we can break the “chain of causation” and work together to prevent similar catastrophes.

Due Diligence… Are You Covering Your Assets?

Why is Due Diligence Important?  Should you take notes?  Can you prove that you are protecting workers from workplace hazards?  What is the importance of Fall Rescue Plans?  In the event of litigation, Due Diligence is your defense. In this seminar, a former MOL Inspector will discuss how to strengthen your Due Diligence, and explain the costs of not having a solid program.

Stay Calm and Plan On

Using BaAM’s recent experience of moving a high-profile event into the Miami Convention Center in the midst of major renovations and scheduling challenges, Louis Marrone will demonstrate how a solid project management process is still the best tool for ensuring that changing safety and emergency requirements mid-project cost minimal time and money.

Event Vehicle Mitigation Strategies

Sgt. Lee Graham will give an overview of the changing global security landscape, and how to prevent a vehicle attack in collaboration with the Toronto Police Service. Events on or adjacent to roadways may be vulnerable, so event planners need to review emergency action plans, site layouts and security plans to better secure their event perimeters for the attending audience.

Active Attacker – Planning and Response

 The news is filled with reports of active attacker incidents in public spaces, including live event venues. Sgt. Lee Graham will review planning and response strategies you can use to protect yourself, your artists, co-workers and members of the public attending your event.

Crafting Respectful Live Event Workplaces

 To thrive and do our best work, we all need respectful and civil environments that are free of harassment, bullying and discrimination. While occupational health and safety legislation gives a framework for compliance, some workplaces become poisoned despite their policies. This panel will bring together perspectives from the festival, music, performing arts, film and television industries to discuss how we can move forward to create healthy and productive workplaces.
