Emergency Response Planning

Introductory Information:

This course focuses on the plans that facilities must prepare to protect their employees and the surrounding community from potential emergencies. Participants will learn how to use the National Response Team's guide for developing an Emergency Response Plan to cover fires, explosions, hazardous materials incidents, technical rescues, emergency medical incidents, natural disasters, and acts of terrorism.

Main Topics Covered in this Course Include:

  • Planning Requirements
  • Integrated Contingency Plan
  • Planning Process

Opening Remarks:

SafeResponse has developed this on-line training program on Emergency Response Planning. This includes personnel who are responsible for creating, maintaining or implementing the Emergency Response Plan for their facility. Some of the examples used in the training program have been specifically developed for Ford Motor Company. These materials are included as examples only.

Certification

Certificates of completion can be printed by the participant once a 70% or greater score is achieved. The participant may take the quiz as many times as necessary in order to reach the 70% mark. A representative from your employer will have to sign the certificate in order to be complete. In order to be certified, all participants must complete the required information on the registration form. Each participant must also complete the training on an individual basis. If you ask someone else to go through the program for you, you will not learn the information that will be necessary to protect your safety and the safety of others. This will also render your certificate null and void.

Thank you for your interest in this training program. For information on other programs related to emergency response, contact info@isciweb.com.

Legal Requirements:

This course is designed for personnel who are responsible for creating, maintaining or implementing the Emergency Response Plan for their facility. This may include:

  • Human Resource Managers

A number of state, provincial, and federal regulations require employers to develop one or more emergency response plans to address strategies for handling potential incidents that may occur. This may include fires and explosions, hazardous materials incidents, technical rescues, emergency medical incidents, natural disasters, and acts of terrorism. In the United States, states and local units of government must also develop emergency response plans to address potential threats to the citizens of their respective jurisdictions. This course will focus on the plans that employers must prepare to protect their employees and the surrounding community from potential emergencies.

Getting the Most out of the Program:

  1. Before you start the course, click on each section tab at the top of the introduction page. This will tell you how the course is organized.
  2. You do not need to complete the course in one session. Plan 20-minute blocks of time for each module.
  3. This course should take (on average) 3 hours to complete. Use this number if you are required to track time spent during training.
  4. Use the "Stop" link on the left hand side of the page to mark your place before leaving the course. When restarting a session, it will be helpful to back track to the end of the previous module to review the summary before you start the new module.
  5. You should try to complete an entire module before ending your session. Also, if you experience computer problems during your session, you may have to start your current module over again when you return.
  6. Each of the modules of the course has a summary and questions at the end. Completing each of these questions will reinforce what you have learned.
  7. At the end of the course, you will have to take a short quiz. In order to receive a certificate, you will have to get a minimum score of 70%. Certificates of completion can be printed by the participant once the 70% or greater score is achieved. The participant may take the quiz as many times as necessary in order to reach the 70% mark.
  8. Many of the questions in the quiz are based on information that appears in the pop-up boxes that occur throughout the course. You will get a better score if you click on any words or phrases that are highlighted in blue.
  9. Finally, on-line learning is based on content and learner responsibility. As a learner, you have even more responsibility when taking this course. If you skip a section or fail to review all the material, it could result in an injury to you, a fellow employee, or a visitor to your facility. For this reason, we urge you to get as much out of this course as you can.
