Emergency Plans

Emergency incidents can occur in any commercial or industrial environment at any time.

The risks to buildings and occupants can be reduced with good and proper planning, while some risks can even be eliminated.

The Emergency Management Planning process develops procedures that ensures the safety of people during an emergency and it also identifies possible risks.

An emergency is any unplanned event that can cause deaths or significant injuries to employees, customers or the public; or that can shut down your business, disrupt operations, cause physical or environmental damage, or threaten the facility's financial standing or public image.

What Is Emergency Management?
Emergency management is a dynamic process of preparing for, mitigating, responding to and recovering from emergency.

Planning, though critical, is not the only component. Training, conducting drills, testing equipment and coordinating activities with the community are other important functions.

To be successful, emergency management requires upper management support. The chief executive sets the tone by authorizing planning to take place and directing senior management to get involved.
