ABSTRACT

Interim NIOSH Training for Emergency Responders: Reducing Risks Associated with Long Work Hours   [open html - 0B]

This is an online training from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). From the Introduction: "The intended audience for this training is emergency responders who may need to work longer than normal day shifts. This training program was developed for emergency workers who deploy to work at disaster sites caused by weather, earthquakes, epidemics, and other catastrophic events. This training gives strategies to reduce risks from fatigue due to the need to work long day shifts during the emergency response and recovery operations. Although certain parts of your deployment will be unique, others are more universal: [1] Deployment can be a very rewarding experience. [2] Deployment can mean extended and unusually long shifts. [3] During deployment, it is important to remember your own health. This online training addresses the last two points and will help you take care of yourself while deployed."
