The hallmark of Health and Safety Regulations in most countries is the employer’s requirement to conduct a comprehensive risk assessment for each of their facilities. This requirement ensures that the employer identifies workplace deficiencies, or job-related risks, so that they may be addressed.
EU’s risk assessment programs are based on industry best practices and are conducted by experienced and knowledgeable experts. Each risk assessment includes an e-tool and on-site consultative component, and is uniquely designed to serve as an educational tool while compiling data and compliance status. A comprehensive risk assessment report is delivered with easy to track deficiencies and recommendations.
Expert consultation is available globally to ensure your organization is providing for the safety of all employees. Emergency University’s database of country specific, industry, state, provincial and local regulations provide the basis for ensuring that we can accurately address your concerns. Consultation can be comprehensive, such as establishing the health and safety foundation of a new facility, or topical, such as developing or reviewing “maternal” policies to ensure they meet regulatory compliance. EU will provide you factual context so that you can make informed decisions.
Written evacuation plans, employee training, and evacuation response team training is required by nearly every country in the world. EU has developed a patented, one of a kind program, that maps your evacuation routes by floor, evaluates current or needed evacuation signage, and provides your personnel with a graphic tutorial of their evacuation routes. The trackable tutorial documents your organization’s compliance for new hire or annual training requirements. The graphic step-by-step evacuation tutorials are available on employee cellphones, and can provide direction and reassurance during emergencies, reducing evacuation times by as much as 75%.

The majority of states in the US require and/or recommend the adoption of Injury an Illness Prevention Programs for the workplace. This is due to increasing evidence that these programs reduce workplace illness and injuries and result in organizational cost savings. Similar to Health and Safety Programs in the UK and European countries, risk assessments, joint participation of management and the workforce are key to creating a positive safety culture. Emergency University can provide the expertise to implement these programs based on required regulations or voluntary standards.

The primary health risk in the U.S. for office workers is the ergonomic condition of the workstation. Emergency University has developed a user-friendly online ergonomic assessment and training module that can be completed by employees as they sit at their workstation. Employees are asked to graphically select elements of the workstation that reflect their actual work conditions, and training relating to the risks and benefits of their choices. At the conclusion, the employee is provided with a “virtual workstation” that they have created, and a list of low-cost recommendations to correct identified deficiencies.
For employees who require additional assessment, Emergency University provides a “Virtual On-Site” Assessment via video conferencing software by an experienced ergonomic specialist. EU’s ergonomic program is supported by a sophisticated software suite that tracks the individual’s training, recommendations, and provides a real-time report to the employer upon completion.
