Emergency Response & Planning
Every business must conform to OSHA (Occupational Safe and Health Administration) requirements to “Provide a workplace free from serious recognized hazards and comply with standards, rules and regulations issued under the OSHA Act.”
OSHA standard 1910.38 stipulates that your business must have an emergency action plan. But an emergency action plan coupled with a holistic emergency management program will improve a “workplace free from serious recognized hazards” including public disorder, workplace violence, active shooter, bomb threats, natural disasters, and communication methodologies.
A subset practice of Security Management is the development of an emergency management program with a cohesive set of policy, standards, and procedures; emergency playbooks to reduce the vulnerability to “serious recognized hazards;” and proactive preparedness activities and responses to a disaster.
Emergency management does not avert or eliminate disasters; instead, it focuses on creating specific processes to decrease the subsequent effect of disasters. Failure could lead to human mortality, lost revenue, and damage to assets. Events covered by emergency management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and telecommunication failures.
