Emergency response planning
Jones Consulting cc
Local Municipal by-laws state that every company in the major metropolitan municipalities must have an Emergency Response Plan in place that meets the minimum requirements of the by-laws. There are a number of other smaller municipalities which have similar regulations in place. In addition to the requirements of the local municipalities all companies wishing to implement either an ISO 14000 environmental management system or an OHSAS 18000 occupational health and safety management system must prepare and maintain an emergency response plan applicable to the risks present at that company. Our contingency plans deal with 17 modern day risks and threats including mass action and terrorist threats.
