OHS - Emergency Preparedness and Response

(XOHS018Z1)

 

It's far too late to plan for an emergency when the emergency is already happening. Occupational Health and Safety Practitioners help organizations prepare for incidents so that personnel are safe when a natural or technological disaster happens.

In this course, Emergency Preparedness and Response you will discover types of emergency situations workplaces can be faced with. You will learn how to develop an Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and other forms of emergency planning. By developing the skills to assess workplace and organizational vulnerabilities, you will be able to reduce the effects of emergencies using emergency plans, procedures, and training. This will also allow you to help your organization stay compliant with regulatory requirements for emergency planning.
