5 INTRO GENERAL PRINCIPLES zSo What??? yEmergencies take their toll on business in lives, well-being, and dollars yPrevention is the best medicine, but yPreparedness is the key to survival zOther Terms: yemergency management, emergency response, emergency preparedness, emergency planning, contingency planning

6 INTRO GENERAL PRINCIPLES zThe end result is the same: y- limit injuries and damage y- limit civil/criminal liability y- regulatory compliance / avoid fines y+ return more quickly to normal operations y+ protect employees, community, and env. y+ enhances company image zSo, lets get into it……...

7 GENERAL PRINCIPLES zWhat is an Emergency yAny unplanned event that can cause deaths, or significant injuries to: xemployees, customers, or the public yOr, that can: xshut down your business xdisrupt your operations xcause physical or environmental damage xthreaten the facilitys financial standing xthreaten the facilitys public image

8 GENERAL PRINCIPLES zNumerous Events Can Be Emergencies: yFire, Explosion, yHazMat Incident yHurricane, Tornado, Flood, Earthquake, Snow yCivil Disturbance zAvoid the term Disaster yconfuses impact to different companies

9 GENERAL PRINCIPLES zWhat is Emergency Management? yThe PROCESS of preparing for, mitigating, responding to, and recovering from one of these events yIt is a DYNAMIC process, that MUST include xplanning xtraining xconducting drills xtesting equipment xcoordinating activities

10 GENERAL PRINCIPLES zThe Five Main Steps: y1. Establish a planning team y2. Analyze capabilities and hazards y3. Develop the plan y4. Implement the plan y5. Go to Step 2

11 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Establish a Planning Team zForming The Team zInvolve all functional areas ySupport Services yManagement and Personnel yEmergency Response yCommunications yCommunity

12 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Establish a Planning Team zEstablish Authority, Schedule, Budget ycommission the team ywear the managers rank yissue a mission statement yestablish schedules, deadlines, priorities ydetermine the budget (needed vs. approved)

13 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Analyze Capability/Hazards zGather info about current capabilities yreview internal plans and policies ymeet with outside groups yidentify codes and regulations yidentify critical products, services, operations yidentify internal resources yidentify external resources zConduct a Vulnerability Analysis ywell address this in detail later

14 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Develop The Plan zThe Plan should include: an Executive Summary, Emer. Mgmt Elements, Emer. Response Procedures, Support Documents zEmergency Management Elements are: ycommand, control, communications ylife safety, property protection yadministration and logistics yrecovery and restoration ycommunity outreach

15 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Develop The Plan zThe development process should include: yprioritizing ywriting ytraining youtside coord ycorporate comms yreview/revision yapproval ydistribution

16 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Implementation zIntegrate plan into Company Operations yIt should become part of the company culture ySenior Management support? yIncorporated into personnel/financial proc.? yHow is the plan distributed/communicated? yAre all levels of the organization involved? yDo personnel know what they should do?

17 GENERAL PRINCIPLES Implementation zConduct Training yorientation and education sessions ytabletop exercises ywalk-through drill yfunctional drills yevacuation drill yfull scale exercise

18 GENERAL PRINCIPLES zDoes Anyone Remember the Last Step? zGo to Step 2

19 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zThis systematic process of evaluating the probability and potential impact of each emergency. zUse a numerical system to: yAssign probabilities yestimate impact yassess resources zThe Higher The Score the Better

20 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zList Potential Emergencies zInclude internal and external emergencies zFactors to consider: yhistorical ygeographic ytechnological yhuman error yphysical yregulatory

21 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zHistorical Factors, what HAS occured yat this facility yat similar facilities yat other facilities in the area yin the community at-large zGeographical Factors (ie. due to location) yflood plains, seismic faults yadjacent company hazards yairports, railroads, highways, nuclear power

22 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zTechnological Factors: yProcess Safety yComputer Failure yPower Failure zEmergencies from human error due to: ypoor training ymisconduct yfatigue ydrugs/alcohol

23 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zPhysical Factors: ylayout of equipment yproximity of shelter areas yphysical construction zRegulatory Factors: yLimited by regulations? yRequired to respond by regulations?

24 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zEstimate Probability yRate the likelihood of emergency yUse scale of 1 to 5 (1 = lowest probability) ySubjective consideration yBe consistent

25 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zEstimate the Potential Human Impacts ythe possibility of death or serious injury zEstimate the Potential Property Impacts ycost to repair/replace ycost of temporary facilities zEstimate the Potential Business Impacts ybusiness interruption xbreach of supply contracts xinaccessiblity by employees, customers, shippers

26 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zAssess Internal and External Resources y The lower the score the better yin-house assets/talents sufficient yresponsiveness of external support zAdd the columns yThe lower the score the better ySubjective, but comparisons provide planning and resource priorities.

27 VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS zSounds easy, Right??? zLets do one on a simple emergency.
