Occupant Emergency Plan Warden and Monitor Training

As part of the continuing effort to provide a safer workplace, the Office of Management is pleased to announce that additional training sessions will be held for Wardens, Monitors, and Assistants at Forrestal and Germantown. As a Warden, Monitor, or Assistant, you should, annually, attend one of the training sessions for your building to learn and/or to improve how to safely perform the duties of your position.

Training for new Wardens, Monitors, and Assistants will last about 90 minutes and will include dramatic video and real-life discussions to enable you to understand the importance of your duties; how to recognize emergency situations which are not always evident; and how to recognize conditions that would require you to abandon the performance of your duties and evacuate yourself immediately.

Refresher Training will last approximately 45 minutes and will include additional information on how to respond to various scenarios, how to use the evacuation chairs, and how to use fire extinguishers.

The system of Wardens and Monitors at New York’s World Trade Center, enhanced after the 1993 bombing there, has been credited with saving lives during the attack of September 11, 2001. This is important and valuable work that can save lives in an emergency. Your willingness to perform the vital services provided by Wardens, Monitors, and Assistants is greatly appreciated.

Registration: This training is primarily for new Wardens, Monitors and Assistants, although personnel needing a refresher may attend.  Employees may register for a class through the DOE CHRIS Workflow system, by calling the Office of Industrial Hygiene and Safety at (202) 586-1005, or e-mailing the HQ Safety and Health mailbox (hqsafetyandhealth@hq.doe.gov). The class will be listed on the employee's official training record only if registration is completed through the CHRIS Workflow system.  Class size is limited to 30 people.

Wardens, Monitors and Assistants are needed to help with safe, orderly evacuation of Headquarters buildings.  If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions about the course, please call (202) 586-1005.

This video is the first in a series of videos designed to provide you with basic information on emergency procedures. This video is applicable to all Headquarters buildings and will be followed by videos specific for each building. Program Offices are responsible for ensuring that their employees view this video. The video tape is also available with closed captioning from the Washington Area Training and Employees Development Center.

Access through the Online Learning Center:
Contractor employees not already having OLC access are asked to contact the OLC Data Administrator for their DOE sponsor organizations.
