Training Spotlight: Incident Safety Officer Series

The NVFC’s Incident Safety Officer (ISO) training gives students an overview of the role of an ISO and covers communications and safety, as well as the practical application of this information. The course was made possible through a grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation. This is not an Incident Safety Officer certification program.

  • Module 1: Overview: Provides an overview of the roles, responsibilities, qualifications and standards applicable to the Incident Safety Officer.
  • Module 2: Communication: Covers pre-incident, incident, and allied communications issues for the ISO.
  • Module 3: Safety and Incident Response Management: Presents students with an overview of the key response considerations that Safety Officers must deal with in fulfilling their roles and responsibilities.
  • Module 4: Application: Takes the lessons learned in Modules 1-3 and gives the student the opportunity to apply key concepts to practical scenarios. The goal is for the student to take away an experiential understanding of fulfilling the roles and responsibilities of an ISO.
