WLS: Fire and Emergency

Are you ready for major emergencies? Natural and man-made disasters can strike at any time. Have your own emergency response plans when you're at work, at home, on vacation, or on the road. In the United States there have been wildfires, tornadoes and chemical spills. In 2018, there were around 60,000 weather-related events that resulted in almost 600 deaths and 4,300 injuries. Flash floods, tropical storms, and heat waves resulted in the most deaths that year, according to Injury Facts.
Fire safety is the set of practices intended to reduce the destruction caused by fire. Fire safety measures include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire, and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts.
An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) organizes management and employee response to life-threatening workplace emergencies. Well-developed EAPs and proper training prevent and mitigate worker injuries while reducing facility damage during emergencies. A poorly prepared and executed EAP results in a disorganized evacuation response. This causes confusion, additional injuries, and unnecessary illness (due to chemical, biological and/or radiation exposure), not to mention major property damage and loss.
During this webinar we’ll review a checklist of many of the components of effective EAPs and suggestions for using them during relatively minor regular work incidents to always be prepared.
