Description: General industry is required to plan for emergencies under several different federal regulations, ranging from 29 CFR 1910.38 Emergency Action Plans to USEPA’s Risk Management Plan. Insurers, state or local governments may have needs and requirements as well. What happens when an emergency leaves the property line and travels into the surrounding neighborhood or an offsite emergency impacts a facility? This session will explore the importance of coordinating emergency planning with the various different factions of the community, ranging from emergency services to schools and elder care facilities.
