Webinar: Aggressive Command to Prevent the NIOSH 5 LODD Factors On-Demand Presented By Anthony Kastros
The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has established the long-standing trend of causal factors that result in line of duty deaths.
We call the them the NIOSH 5. They are ineffective or improper:
SOG’s of failure to follow SOG’s
If you have had a fire that resulted in near miss, injury, mayday or fatalities to your firefighters, then chances are, the NIOSH 5 were present.
This webinar will discuss how to set up proactive incident command that gets ahead of the incident, allows for aggressive tactics, yet prevents the deadly NIOSH 5 from coming into alignment on your fires. The result is more safe, effective and efficient fireground operations. Whether career or volunteer, testing for promotion or a seasoned officer, this is a dynamic webinar you cannot miss!
