NSC’s “Planning for Laboratory Emergencies” Interactive CD-ROM Course discusses how to minimize damage and prevent injuries if an emergency should occur. A caustic acid hose has just erupted…an experiment has shown unexpected reactions… what should employees do to deal with these and other emergencies? Employees need to know when and how they should act in an emergency situation. Areas covered in the course include the emergency plan, types of emergencies, alarms and warning systems, contacting outside agencies, evacuation, fires, explosions and chemical spills, and more. Using a powerful combination of audio, full-motion video, text and colorful graphics, this course provides the most cost-effective safety and regulatory compliance training available today. The course is divided into a number of logical sections so information is easily understood… and retained. Also designed with the training manager in mind, all courses in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library include a learning management system (at no additional cost). Using this system, trainers can set up “Pre” and “Post” tests… establish log-in procedures… even define and set up curriculum for various job classes. The system also collects and organizes employee performance information through a powerful relational database, which can generate a number of record-keeping and tracking reports… and has a database “import/export” feature, which allows information to be transferred to and from an external database (such as a company’s personnel database). The course is one of over 100 titles currently available in the Interactive CD-ROM Training Library.
