This safety video program on Dealing with the Media in Emergency Situations, designed to help facilities comply with OSHA's HAZWOPER regulation (29 CFR 1910.120), instructs employees on the proper ways of interacting with the media during an emergency situation.
Hazardous materials and waste are part of many work situations, and can be found on many types of job sites. It is so important that employees know how to recognize these potentially dangerous substances, as well as how to handle and dispose of them properly, that OSHA mandates that anyone working with these substances receive comprehensive training in this area.
Areas covered in the safety video program include:
- establishing a relationship with the media before a crisis occurs,
- the duties and responsibilities of the Public Information Officer (PIO),
- early response to the media during an incident,
- ensuring the safety of the media,
- unauthorized communication with the media,
- the consequences of rumors and misinformation, and more.
The safety video program comes with a quiz, a scheduling and attendance form, a training certificate, and an employee training log.
