Life Safety Services
There are a few things in life that you can count on: the sun will rise in the east, set in the west, and Preparis will help you prepare for all of your potential incidents. With disasters, workplace violence and even cybersecurity – Preparis has a plan for you, regardless of how minor the incident may seem, life safety preparedness is crucial to ensuring that your company will prevail and your employees will remain safe.
Start With Creating an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)
Our devoted team of life safety experts use their extensive knowledge to review your business process, employees and more, to determine what your company’s EAP should contain. From there, Preparis creates your customized EAP that ensures OSHA, IFC, NFPA, and all state regulations and requirements are met. Preparis achieves compliance by following the All-Hazards-Approach, which ensures that your EAP will cover an array of threats based on the type of damage, rather than the threat itself.
Add Fire Prevention Planning (FPP)
Within your EAP, you should include an FPP – this is required by OSHA, IFC, NFPA, and state regulations to ensure that there are no hazardous materials on the property that would contribute to or initiate the spread of a fire. Like with the EAP, Preparis will assist you in building an FPP that goes beyond being compliant to ensure maximum safety for your building and employees.
Don’t Forget to Train Staff and Test Plans
Annual Maintenance & Testing
Location changes, structural changes and even staff can require adjustment to your EAP to ensure the plan remains actionable and compliant. As a part of Preparis’ Life Safety Services, we can review your plans annually, as well as revise or update the plans as we see fit. In addition, Preparis can periodically test your plans to ensure they are efficient.
Another major part of the effectiveness of your EAP is how well employees understand the content of the EAP and if they know how to use it. Without being properly trained on how to use the EAP, many companies find that their staff “freezes” during an emergency and the EAP is not as effective as it could be. In order to prevent that, Preparis provides you with a wide array of training topics including:
- Tenant Warden Training
- Natural Disasters
- Workplace Violence
- Cybersecurity and more
