Does your organization have an Emergency Action Plan ready for the next crisis? What does it take to create a safety-conscious culture? The 2021 ARA Crisis Preparedness Workshop, held in Philadelphia on Aug. 23-26, can help.

Program Overview

The program will focus on creating or refining a personalized Emergency Action Plan that is relevant, implementable, and sustainable for the needs of your business and the local emergency resources. The content of the workshop will revolve around three fundamental principles of crisis management: plan preparation (PREPARE), actions and activities required to manage a crisis (RESPOND), and requirements to keep a crisis plan sustainable (SUSTAIN).

Led and sponsored by FMC, the day and a half program features industry best practices, interaction scenarios, and a template Emergency Action Plan. Registration will open closer to the event date. Save the dates!

Who Attends?

Environment, health and safety (EHS), and communications staff. Other participants include location managers and others who may be involved should an emergency situation occur. Participating companies are encouraged to send at least two team members to this workshop to maximize the experience.
