We have recently updated our online course, Environmental Health and Safety – Emergency Preparedness by author, Ralph Gunness.
This course is the first of two Environmental Health and Safety courses by the author. It provides mining managers and professionals with a set of practical guidelines on Environmental Emergency Preparedness and how to start managing and preparing for an environmental emergency.
This course is split into three parts:
- Part 1: Environmental Emergencies, including discussion of their occurrence, outcomes, and risk analysis.
- Part 2: Corporate Governance, including discussion of corporate strategy, management, and an example of risk reduction (chemical spill).
- Part 3: Preparedness Plans, including discussion of plans to deal with possible or probable emerging emergencies or disasters, plans to manage after-effects of an emergency or disaster, an emergency preparedness checklist, and the level of emergency services typically provided by government.
