Client Story

Does it work in the real world?

One of the requirements for hazardous substances compliance is emergency management.  It can be difficult to take what's in your emergency response plan and implement it.  Without a thorough review it can be easy to write and plan your emergency response but overlook the practicalities of a real world situation and how it will affect your site during and after the emergency.

Janet has facilitated workshops for clients to enable them to delve deeper into the details of their existing plans which results in an overall more robust procedure that works and covers all possible scenarios.
