Have you ever arrived at the office to find chaos, people running around seemingly not knowing what to do? You might learn that there is a hazmat problem, or similar, and no one knows what to do. Thankfully there are no injuries, but you must find out what is wrong and fix it. The big problem isn’t that, however, it’s this: your company does not have an emergency plan for any of the dangers this industry provides. You might have things like the required electronic monitors to ‘sniff’ the air for hazardous gases, or perhaps a company policy that requires each employee at risk to carry and use respirators. However, the problem still has to be located and repaired.
No Outside Help
The company you own or managed might not be prepared to handle even this level of emergency; you have the safety equipment required to keep employees safe, such as gas masks, safety harnesses, hard hats and even steeled toed shoes, but if there is no safety plan to handle this emergency, you might be in big trouble. You might have always intended to implement a safety program, but other things happen, and you might get busy. Now there is no one to respond to this problem and resolve it. Now the downtime is going to cost a lot more than it should.
What Do You Do?
It’s time to get a safety plan in place, and now you have to implement an incident response policy and find the right people to respond to and handle the problem. Well, that is easier than it might sound. Some companies specialize in just that, and can send in the emergency response team. They recruit, train and equip the best from every facet of the safety business. Their structure is such that they can outsource the right people to your business who know when and how to respond. When trouble happens, you are ready for it.
