Emergency Planning – Design
- A full risk assessment should be provided for each building to determine potential exposures, losses or emergency situations.
- The Emergency Plan for a building must take into account potential calamities or emergency situations that the building occupants may be exposed to.
- The safety committee should be involved in the design and implementation of an emergency response plan.
- The Emergency Plan should be practiced on a regularly scheduled basis.
- Documented practice/ drills should be to ensure the plan is working and meets the needs.
- A de-brief discussion should take place with all involved after a practice or drill to answer any questions or make any changes if required.
Health and Safety Committee – Performance Objectives
- The Emergency Plan development and implementation should take into account all local emergency services including fire, police, ambulance, PEP, municipal, gas, water & power companies, etc.
- Keep up to date on all Code, Regulation and Standard changes.
- Make a change to the Emergency Plan as required.
