Upcoming Event

The Mid-Illinois RIMS Chapter is cooperating the American Society of Safety Professionals, American Industrial Hygiene Association, Occupational Safety and Health Administration;  along with other related organizations, to bring you the Downstate Illinois Occupational Safety and Health (DIOSH) Day on February 27th, 7:00 AM to 3:45 PM at Peoria Civic Center.   See attached brochure for detailed agenda. 2019_DIOSH_Day_full_brochure_final.pdf


The Mid-Illinois Chapter is sponsoring the risk management topic of “Ageonomics”.  Ageonomics is a term coined by Aon casualty and safety consultants to describe a scientific discipline concerned with the interaction of the aging worker in relation to the workplace and work environment within which they operate. Ageonomics incorporates core disciplines of human factors, ergonomics, wellness, benefit program design, health and safety to assess, understand and ultimately optimize the systems for greater individual and organizational impact. The Ageonomic approach not only creates a safer workplace for aging workers, but helps employers reduce workplace injuries, decrease employee leave time, and offers risk and financial leaders a means of identifying loss cost metrics to better manage absenteeism and ultimately drive down the total cost of casualty risk and overall medical expenses.

Carol Ungaretti will be the presenter.  Carol is a Managing Consultant within Aon’s Global Consulting practice. Carol focuses her attention on the design, development, implementation and benchmarking of comprehensive casualty risk consulting projects. Carol incorporates industry best practices with Aon’s global risk consulting proprietary cost mitigation strategies and tools to provide specialized services for clients in managing and reducing their overall cost of risk by not only examining the traditional elements of their insurance programs, but by going considerably beyond those elements to create an outcomes-focused, best practice-oriented approach to claims cost containment tailored to a company’s unique needs. The goal is to positively influence individual outcomes and portfolio-wide results, both retrospectively for existing claims and prospectively for claims which have not yet occurred.
