Emergency Preparation and Management

Is your organization prepared for emergency situations? Does it comply with state and federal laws that require actionable and current emergency response plans? Gain insight into being more proactive in emergency preparedness by developing strategies to help prevent and mitigate hazards, as well as for response and recovery efforts. Discuss key components of emergency response plans and management techniques common to all emergency situations, such as:

  • Natural disasters
  • Fire
  • Security threats
  • Hazardous materials incidents

Expand your understanding with an overview of relevant local and federal government response plans and agencies, the Incident Commands System (ICS), disaster notifications, crisis management skills, decision making under pressure, effective communication techniques and media and public relations factors. This course is required for the Workplace Health and Safety Manager Certificate Program.
