Opening Keynote | Evaluating Your Emergency Response Options: Is 911 Enough?
Time: 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM EDT
Presented by: Drew Hinton, CSP, CHMM, EMT, President/CEO, Arrow Safety, LLC
If there’s a foreseeable emergency in your workplace, OSHA requires you to plan for it. But how well do you actually plan for each type of emergency situation? In this session, we will discuss how to properly evaluate your local fire department’s response capabilities, as well as how it ties into applicable OSHA and ANSI standards. We tell ourselves that we should plan for the worst and hope for the best, but are we really doing that?
During this session, we will discuss the following key topics:
- Various types of workplace emergencies that you may encounter,
- How to evaluate your local fire department’s capabilities,
- Applicable OSHA, ANSI, and NFPA standards, and
- The importance of continuous improvement in regard to emergency preparedness.
Register for this session here to reserve your spot in this event.
