Emergency Response Planning

Under current legislation, it is the legal responsibility of occupiers of a building to prepare and publish Emergency Response Plans.

The Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is part of a structured and proactive intervention to any incident or situation that poses an immediate risk to health, life, property or the environment. The ERP is prepared in support of the overall health and safety management strategies of the company.

Our Emergency Response Planning Course provides participants with the knowledge to enable them to ensure that the ERP is executed in a timely and effective manner.
