New software for emergency response

In the aftermath of two devastating hurricanes, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) recently unveiled a new software platform called ERHMS Info Manager. The software is designed to track and monitor emergency response and recovery worker activities during all phases of response following a natural disaster or other public health emergencies.

The new software was developed to help emergency response organizations implement the NIOSH Emergency Responder Health Monitoring and Surveillance (ERHMS) framework, a data collection initiative. The software decreases the time required to identify exposures and signs and symptoms of illness during an emergency response by efficiently collecting, analyzing, and reporting health data.

Through the software, you can:

  • Create responder profiles.
  • Record response incidents and map incident locations.
  • Assign responders to an incident roster.
  • Design forms and surveys using custom and prebuilt templates.
  • Request information from responders by using forms and surveys.
  • View and analyze forms and survey responses.

NIOSH has also developed a new page on its website for information related to emergency responder health monitoring and surveillance.
