Course Description

Emergency preparedness and response are growing concerns within all industries operating in North America and overseas. Fires and explosions, building and crane collapse, natural disasters, chemical spills, and terrorist attacks can disturb or destroy a company's operations for extended periods of time. Learn the five main aspects involved in emergency preparedness and response: recognition of vulnerabilities, development of plans, implementation, response, and post-incident analysis. We will use lectures, case studies, and take home assignments to assist you in incorporating an effective and specific plan for your place of work.
