In recent years, facilities managers of offices, retail establishments, schools/universities, healthcare and other non-manufacturing facilities have become aware of additional unwanted or unplanned events.

Here are 4 steps to developing an effective Emergency Response Plan:

  1. Conduct a standard GAP analysis to identify predictable risks and events (i.e. Asbestos and lead release, bodily fluids incident, etc.)
  2. Develop the various scenarios and conditions that can lead to predictable risk events based on the GAP analysis

  4. Train personnel in each of the ERPs to ensure the plans are effective

Current Safety Topic

According to OSHA, nearly four million workers are injured or made sick at work and more than four thousand die from preventable work-related injuries or illnesses every year.

Under the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970, employers are responsible for providing "safe and healthful working conditions" for their workers.

On the frontline, working to achieve this goal of creating a healthy and safe work environment, are thousands of dedicated Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIHs) like Chris Schneider of 1Source Safety and Health.

Today, CIHs are employed in countries worldwide and have proven to be instrumental in helping private employers, institutions and government agencies improve work environments for health and safety.
