Emergency Management

One of the key areas of the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996 was the requirement for sites holding significant quantities of hazardous substances to have a documented emergency response plan and to exercise each aspect of this at least once a year.

While it is the responsibility of the client to write this plan, we are able to assist in the process by suggesting tailored areas that should be included in these documents to fulfil the requirements of the regulations.

The minimum requirements for such a plan are set out in Part 4 of the Hazardous Substances (Emergency Management) Regulations 2001 which can be accessed here.
