PDC 8 – Emergency Scene Management in Semiconductor Manufacturing
Organized by: Joe Caller; Philips Semiconductor
Target Audience: Intermediate (2-10 Years Experience)
Use of an Incident Command System (ICS) to manage hazardous materials emergencies is required by both OSHA and the NFPA. Most training classes on the subject of emergency management tend to emphasize the generic features–that the same basic model is used by fire, medical, disaster, and other emergency service providers. This course focuses instead on the unique setting of semiconductor manufacturing, and the type of ICS deployment used to manage emergency operations in that setting.
This half day PDC is based on a course developed specifically for leaders of a semiconductor Emergency Response Team, with the primary goal of making incident command more directly applicable to scenes they would typically respond to. This shortened version retains the hands-on exercises and scenarios that facilitate student learning. More importantly, it presents an instructional technology that enables emergency response coordinators to provide scene management training in their own situations.
