The existence of an emergency action plan underlines the actions employees should take to ensure their safety if a fire or other emergency situation occurs. When constantly reviewed, coupled with proper employee training, this will result in fewer and less severe employee injuries and less structural damage to the facility during emergencies.
This course will deal with issues specific to your worksite where a workplace evaluation will be done. Together, representatives (management and employees) will be brought through a series of ‘mocked’ emergencies during our table top simulations to appropriate and heighten participants’ responsiveness, of course taking into account worksite layout, structural features and emergency systems.
