About the course
OHS professionals are often called upon to lead an organization’s emergency management team. Examine case studies and post-event reviews to learn about the four pillars of emergency management – prevention/mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery – and explore the ways in which they interact in real-life scenarios. Understand how an emergency management program is structured as you work through the Canadian Standard for Emergency and Continuity Management.
What you will learn
- Explain the key aspects of each of the pillars of emergency management.
- Relate how the pillars of emergency management are connected and work collaboratively.
- Show how the requirements listed in the CSA Standard have been addressed or omitted when reviewing an organization's program or its response to an emergency event.
- Use the CSA Standard Z1600-17 to build a basic emergency management and business continuity program.
