09:00AM – 01:00PM I Workshop 1: Evacuation Planning for FSMs

Time

Details

08:30AM – 09:00AM

Delegate Registration

09:00am – 10:30am

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

One of the most critical components of any emergency plan is its evacuation effectiveness. Given the complexity of building design and layout, fire safety managers have a daunting task to be able to advise on safe egress and facilitate evacuation planning during the formulation of the fire emergency plan.

This course will provide participants with an overview of what to consider when planning building evacuation and how to implement the evacuation strategy in part-whole-part approach.

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

Upon completion, you would be able to:

  • Recognize the importance of safe egress during emergency
  • Understand the psychology and fear of building occupants
  • Identify the types of resources and competency to build an effective evacuation team
  • Design and implement an effective evacuation strategy
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of an emergency evacuation

WORKSHOP OUTLINE

  • Legislative requirements for safe egress
  • Planning parameters for effective evacuation
  • Emergency evacuation procedures
  • Resources and infrastructure to facilitate evacuation
  • Evacuation team training and competency

10:30am – 10.45am

02:00PM – 06:00PM I Workshop 2: Emergency Response Planning for Industrial Premises

Time

Details

01:00pm – 2:00pm

Delegate Registration for Workshop 2

02:00pm – 03:30pm

WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Industrial buildings not only get taller, more complex nowadays, it also gets more hazardous when their business operations involve use and storage of flammable and toxic chemicals. Industrial building owners and management not only need to ensure safe egress for the occupants, they are also tasked to put in place an effective fire emergency plan or emergency response plan to handle the emergency situation such as fire, chemical spill, and toxic release. Hence, the need for effective emergency response planning cannot be understated.

This course will provide participants with an overview of how industrial complex/buildings can be better prepared for such incidents through effective emergency planning, and be prepared to face and overcome the impact when probable scenarios happen.

 

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

Upon completion, you would be able to:

  •  Recognize the impact of probable scenarios in industrial buildings
  • Understand the emergency planning cycle and its functional parameters
  •  Identify the types of resources and competency to build an effective emergency response team
  •  Design and implement an effective emergency response planning program
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of an emergency plan for commercial building

WORKSHOP OUTLINE

  • Legislative requirements for emergency response planning
  • Emergency planning and incident management
  • Emergency planning cycle
  • Company emergency response team requirements
  • Guidelines for writing an effective emergency response plan

3:30pm – 3:45pm
