Minnesota OSHA Compliance Construction Safety Seminar: Rescue Plans; Crisis Management

Minnesota OSHA Compliance Construction Safety Seminar: Rescue Plans; Crisis Management

Free! • 7 to 9 a.m. • Nov. 17, 2015

Many types of emergencies can take place on a construction worksite because there are so many different types of construction. What is safe one moment is no longer safe the next. Workplace situations and hazards can change in a flash and employers must be ready with ways to rescue workers if something goes wrong.

How do you plan for an emergency or a rescue? What do you do after someone is hurt? What is crisis management and how is it applied? This seminar will take an in-depth look at what needs to be done to have effective emergency and rescue plans, as well as a crisis management system if something does occur.

The Construction Safety Seminar series is a great opportunity to get answers directly from Minnesota OSHA Compliance, citation-free. The seminars are designed to help those who work in the construction industry to re-energize their company’s safety and health practices. Attendees have the opportunity to ask questions and offer input during the discussion, as well as learn about the compliance issues Minnesota OSHA is currently focusing on.
