Fire Department Health & Safety Officer Academy (The Secret List)

Wednesday, September 2, 2015   All,  A new 2 day Health and Safety Officer Academy will be presented by FDNY Chief Officers Stephen Raynis and Daniel Melia at the Fire Department Safety Officers Association annual Safety Forum, [www.fdsoa.org] September 21-22, 2015, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. This accelerated program prepares fire officers for the successful completion of the Pro Board certified HSO exam that will be offered immediately after the program.

The two-day Health & Safety Officer Academy will be based on the 4th edition Occupational Safety and Health in the Emergency Services by James S. Angle, the text book used by FDSOA to develop the examination for Pro Board certification.

Chief Raynis has taught Occupational Safety and Health for Emergency Services at the college level since 2008 and is a member of the Technical Committee for NFPA 1521 Standard for Fire Department Safety Officer Professional Qualifications. 

Melia added, “In addition, we will share our unique experiences as FDNY safety officers. Case studies will be presented and student discussions will be encouraged. Time will be provided for students to share their experiences and the opportunity to learn from each other.”

Learning outcomes from this program include: 

-insight into safety related regulations and standards, 

-an understanding of the development, 

-management and evaluation of safety programs, 

-information management skills, 

-safety considerations in the diversified workforce and future trends and technology in emergency service.
 
Both Chiefs have seen the role of a Health and Safety Officer significantly evolve in the past ten years and with the appointment of a HSO now required by NFPA 1500: Standard on Fire Department Occupational Safety and Health Program.
 
In addition to the HSO academy at the Safety Forum, Raynis and Melia will also present Safety: Everyone's Responsibility. Key takeaways include: Learn a safety program that is very effective and can be taught in the firehouse kitchen and how to empower every firefighter to make the best decisions on the fireground so they are free to focus on operational success.
 
For more information regarding the FDSOA Annual Safety Forum, September 21-25, 2015, contact Rich Marinucci, executive director, at fdsoainfo@gmail.com or visit www.fdsoa.org.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
