The purpose of the "Emergency Preparedness" documents is to guide departments and crown corporations in the development and implementation of the "Emergency Preparedness" element of their health and safety management system.
In all emergency situations, protecting the life and personal safety of employees, clients and visitors takes precedence over protecting property.
The threat to life, personal safety and property is reduced when workers are familiar with their role in an evacuation, the evacuation routes and have opportunity to practice during non-emergency drills.
The "Workplace Emergency Preparedness Plan" (the plan) guides YG employees when faced with an emergency situation.
The plan outlines the role each employee needs to take in order to make the plan work, how to evacuate the building, how employees will practice and what employees need to do in the different emergencies.
