Meissner and Jansen will also discuss best practices and measures operators can take to help prevent potential accidents in the future, including behavioral training of employees, as well as guidelines for proper maintenance inspection and repairs. 

The presentation will be held on Thursday, March 9 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. at the Westgate – Pavilion 9 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
