The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires that the constructor shall establish Emergency Response Procedures for every project. This document provides a plan to assist constructors in developing these procedures.
Emergency preparedness helps to minimize the human suffering and economic losses that can result from emergencies.
It should be understood that the size and complexity of projects, as well as their access and location, have a bearing on the degree of planning necessary for emergencies. It is therefore strongly recommended that the constructor ensure that a member of staff on site assist in developing the emergency response plan.
