Product Description

Learn the policies that regulate the chemical industry and get the best practices and ideas for all workplace emergencies

It is essential for all pharmaceutical facilities to have in place a well thought out emergency action plan. In this webinar, expert speaker Ryan Davison, Ph.D. will outline best practices and ideas for all workplace emergencies. Workers and employers are required to know and follow specific Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. It has been demonstrated that well prepared evacuation and emergency plans result in fewer and less severe employee injuries and less structural damage to the facility during emergencies. A poorly prepared plan, likely will lead to a disorganized evacuation or emergency response, resulting in injury, and property damage.

In this program you will learn to comply with all OSHA emergency standards and procedures. It will help you put together a comprehensive emergency action plan that addresses issues specific to your worksite. The best emergency action plans include employees in the planning process so this webinar will be useful to staff and management.

You will learn about the policies that regulate the chemical industry from someone that works directly with the lawmakers and staff that create the policies.
