Emergency Preparedness Audit

Are you responsible for the safety and protection of a business in a high-hazard industry including your company’s internal Emergency Response Team?

Are you confident that your team has the competence and capability to deal with all potential major accident hazards?

Are you sure that your Emergency Response Team is fully prepared, efficient and effective in every aspect of their role?

Does your team adopt new ways of working to ensure continuous improvement?

An Emergency Preparedness Audit will provide you with all the answers. With the minimum disruption to your business a dedicated team with considerable experience in emergency services management will independently review your whole system – including prevention, protection, preparedness and response through to effective risk management, health and safety, training and development.

We use the industry standard toolkit to examine the whole of your emergency response cover. It is recommended that an independent review of the key areas of assessment is undertaken at least every two years and is a prerequisite for companies looking to continuously improve and benchmark themselves against the best.

Our Audit will check that your Emergency Response Team (ERT) has the following in place:-

  • An effective, evidence- based risk strategy that reflects the nature of your business and identifies and prioritizes risks
  • Effective risk analysis that plans, prepares and delivers prevention, protection, incident support and response, health, safety, training and development activities as well as improving performance
