  • Identify different types of emergency personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Describe requirements for evacuation routes, exits, and assembly points
  • State why emergency training is important

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is an emergency action plan?
A plan set up by your employer that explains procedures to follow during an emergency.

What should I know about alarms, alerts, and warning systems?
Know how to set off alarms at appropriate times, know what all alarms, alerts, and warnings mean, and know what to do if they are turned on.

What should I know about emergency medical care?
Know procedures for getting medical care onsite and how to call for off-site medical care when necessary.

What is an emergency shelter?
A safe place inside your work place where you should go in the event of some emergencies, such as a tornado. Your employer should identify these safe places and explain to you when you should go there.

How should I leave the work area during an emergency?
You should know the primary and secondary evacuation route. Try to use the primary route first, and then the secondary. Take the evacuation route through the emergency exit and gather at the emergency assembly point.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Every year, workplace emergencies cause thousands of injuries and deaths in the United States. These emergencies may be natural or manmade, and include: •Radiological incidents •Fires and explosions •Floods and blizzards •Hurricanes and tornadoes •Earthquakes and tsunamis •Chemical spills and toxic gas releases •Workplace violence, bomb threats, and civil disturbances During emergencies, the situation is often made worse by panic, confusion, lack of information, incorrect information, and limited visibility. Workplaces and employees that have prepared in advance often have a better chance of surviving the crisis.

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
