Emergency Action Planning – Are You Ready?

An emergency action plan (EAP) is a written document required by particular OSHA standards. The purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies. Well-developed emergency plans and proper training will result in fewer and less severe employee injuries as well as less structural damage to the facility during emergencies. At minimum, the plan must include, but is not limited to, the following elements:

  • Means of reporting fires and other emergencies/li>
  • Evacuation procedures and emergency escape route assignments
  • Procedures for employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate
  • Accounting for all employees after an emergency evacuation has been completed
  • Rescue and medical duties for employees performing them
  • Names and job titles of persons who can be contacted

If the heat illness standard applies to you and your organization, please consider attending this event. Employees who attend will be certified as Heat Illness Trainers and provided with sample materials to assist in the development and implementation of a Heat Illness Prevention Program.

Safety – Common sense? I don’t think so!

This course is geared towards today’s safety professionals and the challenges associated with developing a safe culture, behavior modification and focusing on a safety mentality. Today’s safety professionals must still demonstrate to management what the potential return on investment is when trying to drive change.

This course will dig down to the root of the belief “safety is common sense” and why that perception is so popular, even amongst some of our fellow safety professionals. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Clearly define what common sense truly is
  • Truly identify their perception or methodology towards injury prevention
  • Self identify the inconsistencies of using a good common sense approach while placed in the line of fire
  • Drive specific behaviors from each other to eliminate the dependencies of “common sense”
  • Convince your facility management that injury prevention can only
    be accomplished with a united front using a systemic approach to hazard/exposure abatement

If the heat illness standard applies to you and your organization, please consider attending this event. Employees who attend will be certified as Heat Illness Trainers and provided with sample materials to assist in the development and implementation of a Heat Illness Prevention Program. In addition, this training will meet both the supervisor and employee requirements for training.
