When job site emergencies take place, there are a number of different risks that can occur. These risks are why it is essential to take precautions, and ensure that evacuation plans are in place and that all people onsite are tracked.
The risks of job site emergencies that lead to the need for evacuation and contingency plans include:
- Death and injury
- Loss of equipment or inventory
- Environmental impact
- Damage to the community
While it may be impossible to entirely prevent on site emergencies, their effects can be reduced greatly with preparedness.
