Event Description

OSHA’s Emergency Action Plan (EAP) for Workplace Emergency

Emergency can happen anytime and anywhere. The best way is to prepare to respond to an emergency before it happens, but, as per OSHA, only a few people can think clearly and logically in a crisis, so it is important to do so in advance, when you have time to be thorough. The most important part of industry is the person. Rapid and correct response will ensure the protection of this valuable commodity.

According to OSHA, a workplace emergency is an unforeseen situation that threatens your employees, customers, or the public; disrupts or shuts down your operations; or causes physical or environmental damage.

This session by Bruce Ferries, an OSHA Certified Instructor, will introduce you to the terminology associated with an emergency in the workplace. The terms as emergency response plan, evacuation plan, incident commander and what is a hazardous substance are critical to your proper understanding. The session will also cover emergency response terminology to help you better understand and speak the language to make emergency responses as effective as possible.

The session will provide you with a general perspective on hazardous substances and their associated risks that personnel working in industry may have to encounter in their job environments. Bruce will cover the important components of an emergency response plan and will define the requirements of an emergency response team. He will provide you with an OSHA handout that will help sites develop and Emergency Action Plan (EAP) that OSHA describes in 1910.38(a).

The session will cover types of communications that will be needed and the responsibilities of the incident commander. Finally, the key concepts related to site control and evacuation will be discussed, in addition to the non-emergency response situations as well as the importance of decontamination procedures and resources that will provide medical assistance.
