High Acuity, Low Occurrence (HALO) Events.  In healthcare, we train for these events because they involve skills that do not get used often but have grave consequences when performed badly.  In all levels of healthcare and public safety, we stress the importance of regular training to ensure the best result for our patients, the safety of our people, and the sustainability of our operation.  However, EMS is notorious for not preparing our new and existing leaders for the critical roles hold.

The American Ambulance Association brings you the EMS Supervisor SimLab.  Like patient simulation, this workshop is a practical learning environment in which EMS supervisors and managers will be challenged to tackle real-life ambulance service personnel and operational issues.  The participants will be provided with fact-based scenarios during the workshop will complete a brief outline of how they would approach each issue.  During the workshop, EMS Attorneys Scott Moore and Brian Werfel will facilitate an interactive practical discussion and exercises with the participants, challenging common industry practices, while highlighting the most strategic investigative procedures and techniques.  Lastly, they will outline and assist the EMS Supervisors with drafting comprehensive, and legally defensible, investigative report.

The best way to predict how your supervisors and managers will act when faced with a difficult and legally complicated situations, is to train early and often.

Supervisor SimLab Sexual Harassment Investigations

Despite 40 years or anti-harassment legislation and employer education, there has been no real progress made at preventing harassment in the workplace.  The fact is, organizations that tolerate sexual and other harassment in the workplace will have more of it.  This one-day, interactive SimLab workshop, is geared to prepare frontline supervisors and managers on how to respond to a #MeToo incident in their organization.  This workshop will teach attendees how to prevent all types of harassment in the workplace and will provide them with a practical exercise on how to respond to a harassment complaint, including conducting an investigation, conducting interviews, collecting and weighing the credibility of the evidence, and properly drafting an investigative report.

This workshop is specifically designed to assist California based ambulance service providers in complying with the California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the federal Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  California has one of the strictest supervisor education requirements in the country, including the additional provisions from the FEHA Regulations, AB 1825, AB 2053, and SB 396 which include requires that the programs be “interactive” and scenario based.  In addition, attendees will leave this workshop with skills that will have immediate impact in your organization and how they perform their jobs.
