The Healthcare Environmental Management (HEM) course provides the unique opportunity to improve healthcare safety and security management skills by focusing on compliance with applicable regulations and a systems safety approach to hazard identification and control. Available in-class or online, participants focus on improving workplace safety, reducing the risk of illness and injury to staff and patients, and minimizing property loss.
The course addresses safety from a human factors and systemic perspective. Students are introduced to these concepts as approaches to hazard identification and accident investigation and analysis. Using these concepts, students will be better able to identify systemic factors that may contribute to incidents.
The in-class program includes plenty of time for participants to meet, interact, and network with colleagues who share a commitment to healthcare safety and security. The curriculum is structured with classroom exercises and real world case studies. Active question and answer periods help students develop important peer-to-peer interaction necessary to build leadership and communication and foster team building—all necessary components of the overall safety learning culture that the HEM program strongly promotes.
