Emergency Response Planning: Crisis Management for Hazardous Environments

Why Attend

The sheer range of potential incidents and emergencies that can disrupt or even stop production are increasing. If managed correctly then not all of these incidents will become critical or be classed as a crisis, but those that result in increased losses or put increased demand upon the organisation will have serious consequences for the company, the shareholders and stakeholders or the country itself badly damaging the reputation of all those involved in the response. This course will teach you that meeting this commitment involves more than just being fully prepared.

Course Methodology

This course will enhance your leadership capabilities through assessment, syndicate role play, group discussions. You will enhance you crisis communication skills and develop team problem solving techniques and methods through various challenges. Participants will be given a full student manual with industry standards, audits, plans and checklists which are easily adapted to your own site specific needs, and a full electronic Crisis Response Manual and a video of how to use it.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the attributes between incidents, emergencies and crisis situations
  • Develop methods to avoid unnecessary escalation, and how to design, command and control response to each scenario
  • Enhance on-scene leadership capabilities and techniques
