The Lake County Safety Council is proud to present the June monthly program  ---  Accidents Happen: Or Do They --- on Friday, June 16.

The keynote speaker will be Michael J. Bertsch, Esq., Nicola, Gudbranson & Cooper, LLC.

Among other items, Bertsch will provide an analysis of potential liability for a catastrophic workplace injury.

Bertsch is a member of the Cleveland law firm of Nicola, Gudbranson & Cooper. He defends employers facing workers' compensation claims, alleged safety and United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations, allegations of intentional torts and other employment-related matters.

Bertsch will discuss: OSHA penalties, Ohio BWC/ICO violations and civil suits under Ohio law. Bertsch was at the May safety expo and attended Brad Hurtig's presentation. At least a portion of Bertsch's presentation will be based on his observations of Brad's accident.
