Emergency Response Plans

The purpose of an Emergency Response Plan is to prevent and to minimize real or potential hazards to public health, safety, welfare or the environment from fires, explosions, spills or any other unplanned releases of hazardous materials from the facility. Your Emergency Response Plan must comply with federal, state and local regulations. The plan must clearly outline personnel roles during an emergency, lines of authority, and communication for all affected parties including additional responders such as Fire Departments, law enforcement agencies, emergency medical services, and state and federal agencies.

An Emergency Response Plan is critical to safe operations in a laboratory but developing and maintaining an effective plan can be a challenge. A change in facility, operations or personnel may necessitate updating your plan. EH&E can help you develop a plan or improve an existing one. Through reviewing building specifications and conducting a site visit, we can identify the types of uncontrolled releases that employees could encounter in your workplace. Then we will develop an appropriate plan for responding to these emergencies. EH&E can also assist you with implementation of the Emergency Response Plan and employee training.
