Smart plans are critical.  But, if we don’t get the words off the paper and into people’s heads, we have failed. Thus, training is everything given that people can’t and won’t run to look at binders for response in a real emergency.  The following questions will be answered: What are the laws, regulations and standards that control emergency plan training?; How will lawsuits affect you and your organization?, What are – versus what should be—the overriding attitude of managers in training employees in emergency response? ; What are the obstacles and consistent mistakes organizations make in emergency training?; Do you need to train the Emergency Team differently than the rest of employees?; and finally and most importantly How do you protect your company?
