Description: In this training, participants are introduced to earthquake hazards in health care settings and learn about methods that can be used to analyze and reduce risks of damage in hospitals and other medical buildings. Such facilities have unique nonstructural components, including equipment and infrastructure systems that can become sources of injury or damage even during smaller earthquakes. By implementing sound, cost-effective mitigation measures, health care facilities can reduce seismic risks and ensure that, in the event of an earthquake, they can remain in operation to serve their communities.
Target Audience: Hospital and healthcare facilities managers, engineers, administrators, and other hospital/healthcare personnel
Materials: Materials will be provided
Continuing Education: Certificates of completion will be provided
