Emergency Response Planning
In 1989, OSHA issued a final rule on Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) to work hand-in-hand with SARA Title III. OSHA’s rule, 29 CFR 1910.120, establishes safety and health requirements for employers for the protection of employees and requires the development of an emergency response plan. This plan is to be integrated with local, state, and Federal agency plans for local community emergency preparedness. Two OSHA standards (29 CFR 1910.38(a) and 29 CFR 1926.35) require written EAPs.
Pursuant to the abovementioned rules, safety professionals should be prepared to develop a plan to address emergencies and train employees in emergency response before emergencies occur. Advanced planning is the key to minimizing injuries during an emergency. During this webinar, we will review the requirements of these regulations and provide a general overview of the contents of an emergency response plan.
This webinar is a 1-hour lecture with Q&A.
Upon completion, participants will be able to:
- Define what constitutes a workplace emergency
- Describe an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)
- List the requirements for having an EAP
- Sort what is required and what is recommended content of an EAP
- Create an EAP training requirements list
- Plan for high hazard or unique emergencies
