Emergency Response Plan

Creating Workplace Violence Prevention and Emergency Response Plans

Developing a thorough, effective, and executable Emergency Response Plan (ERP) helps organizations protect life and property, extend their values and culture into their emergency management process, and ensure continuity of operations. Of equal importance will be the constant communication, structured leadership, and collaborative approach to overcoming emergencies.

Priority Protection Group guides clients through the process of identifying areas of improvement in existing plans, developing and coaching an internal ERP committee (following FEMA, NFPA, and OSHA requirements), empowering the committee through organizational buy-in, ERP ownership, and continued improvement. Workplace peace of mind requires both the atmosphere of safety as well as effective and functional emergency response plans.

Several States have passed laws related to workplace violence prevention plans. Among those are:

  • California (SB 533 - Occupational Safety: Workplace Violence: Restraining Orders and Workplace Violence Prevention Plan)

  • Utah (HB 324 - Workplace Violence Protective Orders)


Priority Protection helps companies develop policies that comply with local and state laws and ultimately provide workplace peace of mind. This article offers a helpful perspective on how Priority Protection Group positions companies to develop workplace violence prevention plans.
