Emergency Management Framework

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.
