The Emergency Response Plan (ERP) sets out what a carrier should be prepared for and what should be done in the event of an accident involving certain dangerous goods.
The ERP describes the response procedures and equipment required to contain the consequences of an accident. It provides for incident management and operational arrangements with local authorities such as emergency services and provincial and federal departments.
The Lac-Mégantic rail accident tragically reminded us of the importance of having a robust ERP operational in the event of an emergency.
It must also include training and practice activities to ensure that responders will be ready to respond at the appropriate time.
Prudent Groupe can therefore help you prepare your ERP and implement the required training and exercise activities. In the event of an emergency, Prudent Groupe Conseil can even provide you with advice assistance if you wish.
