Developing an EOP

 

The emergency operation plan (EOP) created by Levine Security Solutions serves as a planning document and consists of four distinct phases. Phase one, mitigation and prevention, focuses on reducing the impact from a range of manmade and natural disaster related situations. Phase two, preparation, addresses the steps to be taken by an organization in order to ensure resources are allocated in order to achieve the best possible outcome from uncontrollable events. Phase three, response, is a fluid and immediate set of actions designed specifically for organizations to minimize personal injury and property damage, and civil liability. Finally, phase four, recovery, provides suggested actions to be taken immediately after an incident in order to continue operations.

 

This document will be detailed, comprehensive, but easy to follow and understand. The Emergency Operations Plan core section, emergency procedures, will be used as a training tool for all staff members with an effort to reduce injury, loss of life, physical damage to the facility, and minimize civil liability. The Emergency Operations Plan is a “living document”, and evaluating the document will take place after an emergency event or planned exercise. Lastly, the plan may be changed at the discretion of the organization given that there is no “one size fits all” emergency operation plan. Additional components, annexes, checklists, maps, and/or forms may be added to the document, in order to adhere to the unique operation of the specific organization.

The plan incorporates concepts and principles from a range of sources to include Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, the National Incident Management System (NIMS), the Incident Command System (ICS), and the Attorney General’s School Safety Plan.

“All employers have a duty to provide their
employees with a workplace free from recognized
hazards likely to cause death or serious physical
harm [General Duty Clause 5(a)(1) of the
Occupational Safety & Health ACT]. Recent court
rulings have allowed negligence suits filed by
victims of Active Shooters to proceed against
employers for failing to provide defensive training
to their employees. Companies can no longer
avoid their corporate responsibility to provide
training on how to react if confronted by a violent
intruder.”

"This is the  best Emergency Operation Plan I've seen, and I have seen many. It should be a model plan for every facility"
