Navigating NFPA Standards and the Certification Pathway for Credentialing Emergency Responders
Gordon Lohmeyer, Executive Associate Division Director, Texas A & M Engineering Extension Service
Training is a key element in any successful response to an Industrial Emergency. Without it, you would have mass chaos on the emergency response scene. The key elements of a successful training plan are the type, the amount and the frequency. This presentation will take an in-depth look at OSHA Regulations and NFPA Standards and how they shape our training plans. We will take a look at several training/certification options including: in-house training (AHJ), training provided by an accredited training provider and the newly-developed Texas Industrial Emergency Services Board (TIESB) voluntary certification program.
