|Date / Time:
||5/17/2017 / 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. Eastern
Disasters can and will strike at any time, regardless of where your organization is located.
To combat this, OSHA reports that nearly every business must have an emergency action plan (EAP) in place to ensure its employees can safely exit the facility in the event of an emergency.
When developing an EAP, there are important regulatory requirements that you need to consider and incorporate to ensure OSHA compliance, such as specific training and documentation requirements you must meet. A comprehensive EAP should keep employees safe, but also focus on operations recovery to ensure business continuity in a time of crises too. This includes preparing for equipment water damage, losses of utility services, continuation of raw material delivery, and alternative manufacturing plan when disaster strikes.
Join us to learn best practices for effective disaster response and business continuity planning. This in-depth training is designed to teach you how to meet OSHA requirements, keep workers safe, and get your businesses up and running again.
