This presentation was arranged by the NIEHS Partnerships for Environmental Public Health program, and conducted on Dec. 13, 2012. In this webinar, NIEHS’ Worker Education and Training Program partners discuss numerous disasters of national significance and lessons learned from each response. Common themes include the need for proper preparedness in the form of appropriate training for the job at hand; community involvement before, during, and after a disaster; and training that empowers workers to recognize and choose the right course of action so as to avoid acute and chronic illness or injury.
