Emergency Response Training on Public Health Emergencies of COVID19 to ERT Members

The Office of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) UPM collaborated with MyOHUN and organized a training program to educate university emergency response team (ERT) members, including students and selected volunteers, about emergency/disaster preparedness for the hazards that may impact university business continuity due to potential incidents.

On 15, 17, 18, and 21 September 2020, a total of 133 participants, including students, university staff, and volunteers, had gone through Emergency Response Training for COVID-19. Three stations were prepared during the training, namely, Bilik Gerakan (Operation Room), Communication Control station, and Disinfection and Sanitization station. Participants were given a briefing and demonstration of how things were done during the pandemic and lessons learned in each station. A speaker and facilitators were positioned in each station to help with the demonstration.  The team hopes to reach a wider audience for future training.
