An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is designed to guide workers in emergency rescue situations. The best way to effectively respond to rescue emergencies is by first identifying its possibility and then rehearsing your reactions. By doing this, you can identify any potential hazardous situations which might prevent you from effecting a quick and safe rescue of a worker who has fallen at height or other incident

The participants in this course shall have already successfully completed Authorized Person or Competent Person Fall Protection training. The main objective of rescue training is to develop an awareness level course designed to enable an Authorized or Competent Person to understand the Rescue or Emergency Action Plan.

The scope of the JAG SYSTEM training is limited to the use of a pre-established rescue systemS and plan. This outline does not apply to professional rescuers or situations where the rescuer must “respond” to an incident without the benefit of pre-planning. Employees are encouraged to assess their rescue needs to determine what level of rescue will be required.
