Participants will learn the legal requirements for evacuation and in-place sheltering. They will also learn how to recognize emergency conditions, how to report an emergency, and how to direct and assist other employees during different types of emergencies.
Michigan State University and Industrial Safety Consultants, Inc. (ISCI) have developed this online training program for Evacuation Coordinators. This includes personnel who are responsible for directing and assisting employees during evacuations or in-place sheltering. Some of the examples used in the training program have been specifically developed for Ford Motor Company. These materials are included as examples only.
Michigan State University is offering this training program for a limited time at no cost to emergency responders in the public and private sector. If you have questions as to whether your organization qualifies for this free training, contact ISCI at email@example.com.
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. Your employer should not sign the certificate until you have participated in an evacuation drill 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.
