Emergency Response Plans
Are you prepared for an emergency at work? Does everyone know where to go if there’s an evacuation? What if there’s a fire, a tornado, or a violent intruder? Wilco Health and Safety is a Calgary health and safety company that help businesses in and around Calgary with their organization’s health and safety programs. Emergency response plans are a critical part of any organization’s health and safety program.
An emergency response plan will protect employees, the public and others by providing direction in what to do in an emergency. An effective emergency response plan will detail procedures for potential emergencies, detail evacuation processes and roles, outline how to use emergency equipment such as fire extinguishers, specify health and safety training requirements, and assess first aid needs. These are some of the requirements of an Alberta health and safety program.
The needs of each organizations’ emergency response plan are different. Some company’s primary emergency considerations are evacuation and fire, while others may be workplace violence. As a Calgary health and safety consultant, we assist companies in determining these priorities and in developing customized procedures and training to maintain emergency preparedness.
