OSHA --29 CFR 1910.157 --requires employers who provide fire extinguishers in the workplace to provide an "educational program" that covers the principles of fire extinguisher use. This program must be provided as part of new employee orientations, and annually thereafter. Employee training Is tracked in real time and its completion by each employee recorded. OSHA accepts online training to meet this requirement.
Emergency University's Fire Extinguisher Training Program is self-paced, and an e-cert is delivered directly to the employee's cellphone upon completion. Employers can access training records via Maestro™ EU's Learning Management System.
Emergency University provides a brief multi-media education program to allow employers to meet this regulatory requirement cost efficiently.
This program is intended for employees who are designated by their employers as responders to assist in the event of a facility fire, such as ERT members or floor wardens, and who may be required to use portable fire extinguishers. Developed by professional firefighters, and innovative educators, this program meets the requirements of OSHA section [1910.157(g)(3)] that states that in addition to cognitive knowledge, the employee must also be provided with "hands-on" training in the use of the fire extinguishing equipment.
“100% Prepared” is an interactive multi-media educational program that ensures that every member of your workforce understands their company’s emergency action plan, and their role during an emergency. The program was designed to minimize injuries and mitigate damages during an emergency by ensuring rapid response and knowledgeable execution of the plan.
Reviews evacuation principles, active shooters, severe weather emergencies including earthquakes and fires. Each module includes knowledge assessments, and a printable summary of the essential principles covered. This program meets the employer’s OSHA regulatory requirement (OSHA 1910.38(f)) to review the emergency action plan with all company personnel on initial hire and annually thereafter. OSHA 1910.38(f)
The ability of the organization to execute their emergency action plan during the first few minutes prior to the arrival of public agencies are critical. This course is designed to ensure your designated responders are prepared to assist during these critical initial minutes.
Emergencies are chaotic by nature, however an organized and practiced evacuation is significantly more likely to lead employees to safety. Emergency University’s evacuation program is designed to train your designated responders to safely and competently assist in the evacuation of their co-workers, and meet the employer’s requirements under OSHA reg - OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.38(e).
Employers must provide evacuation training for their Emergency Response Team and workforce when hired, and annually thereafter, that is tracked and recorded as per US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration Standards for Evacuation training 29 C.F.R. § 1910.38(e) and U.S. Dept. of Labor – OSHA. 29 C.F.R. § 1910.38(f)
Emergency University develops graphic evacuation plans and tutorials that meet this requirement, and prepare the workforce for an emergency evacuation. The evacuation routes can be displayed on your smartphone. EU recommends that new employees practice walking their primary and secondary route to the assembly area to build muscle memory. Importantly during an emergency, each employee can determine their nearest evacuation route, and follow the graphic presentation, to provide them the confidence to evacuate quickly.
