Course Description

This course is designed for the new or experienced health care emergency manager. OSHA requires your facility to have emergency preparedness and action plans (29 CFR 1910.38) and to communicate those plans in writing, if you employ more than 10 workers. The plans must encompass any type of emergency: fire, weather, attack, threat, etc.

The plan must include, at a minimum, the following:
•   emergency escape procedures and escape routes
•   procedures for employees who remain to perform or shut down critical office operations
•   procedures to account for all employees after the completion of an emergency evacuation
•   rescue and medical duties for those employees who are to perform them
•   the preferred means for reporting fires and other emergencies
•   the names or regular job titles of persons or departments you need to contact for further information or explanation of duties under the plan.

Emergency operations plan should address all potential emergencies that can occur in the workplace. This course will use the NFPA 1600 guidelines to meet the OSHA and Joint Commission (EC 4.12) standards for an effective Emergency Operations Plan. Students will work in groups to complete portions of the Emergency Operations Plan template that is included.
