Emergency Prevention, Preparedness and Response Plans (EPPRs)

The actions taken in the initial minutes of an emergency are critical, thus accurate preparation is necessary in order to promptly warn employees to evacuate, shelter or lockdown. Threat management is about prevention, preparedness and response to emergencies and disasters. In guiding our clients to achieve their objectives in relation to threat management, we consider the core business carried out by the organization, as well as its location and operations, with full coverage of all facilities.

Our emergency prevention, preparedness and response plans (EPPRs) cover designated actions employers and employees must take to ensure employee safety from fire and other emergencies. They are tailored to our clients’ worksites and include information about all potential sources of emergencies. In establishing appropriate EPPRs our initial approach is to conduct a risk assessment and identify and prioritize potential risk scenarios and threats. We then establish the actions required to mitigate the existing risk conditions, as well as those required to respond to a disaster. Our next step is to conduct an overall analysis of risks and vulnerabilities to establish priorities. Based on the outcome of this analysis, we prepare and document an EPPR in accord with a systematic and dynamic process. This plan enables the company to implement the necessary actions in terms of prevention, preparation and response to emergencies, in order to protect all employees, visitors, contractors, suppliers, and anyone else in the offices and premises included in the EPPR.
