Egress and Emergency Action Plans
Fires injure or kill thousands of workers annually. Those are the losses due to fires, but there are other hazardous situations that can threaten the life of a worker and health. These situations include severe weather, medical emergencies, chemical releases, and bomb threats. We cannot completely eliminate dangerous workplace situations, but we can reduce the number of associated injuries and deaths. This course will focus on two important aspects of this effort. Ideal learners are all employees.
