Workplace safety is an important concern at FEMA and throughout the Federal government. Workplace safety is everyone’s business. If you get sick or hurt on the job, everyone pays the price—in pain and suffering, in lost work, and in economic costs. When we work together to create a safer place to work, we’re all more productive and satisfied with our jobs. This course is designed to help you understand your safety rights and responsibilities and what you can do to safeguard your own well-being on the job—both in your regular workplace and during deployments.
This course is designed to give you an orientation to workplace safety. At the conclusion of this course, you should be able to:
- Identify safety roles and responsibilities in the workplace.
- Identify potential workplace hazards.
- Identify ways to maximize personal safety at your regular workplace and when deployed.
- Identify procedures for responding to emergencies in the workplace.
All FEMA employees every 2 calendar years. This replaces DF-507 FEMA Safety Orientation.
