This program has been designed for members of an Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) or a person required to manage problems and resolve issues in relation to the organisation’s facility emergency prevention process and emergency control structures.
It covers the skills and knowledge required to be ‘emergency aware’ in their facility allowing them to identify and where possible prevent the development of facility emergency situations.
