Safetec has tailored methods and deliveries to meet the needs for emergency response capability of clients in government and the private sector. Our methods are invaluable for establishing solid risk assessment, supporting effective decision-making, and performing crisis management.

Why Emergency Preparedness Process, EPP?

Regulatory demands require governmental bodies and other public services to establish a comprehensive risk picture before preparing an emergency preparedness plan. Unlike risk offshore, the public is either part of the risk contributors or directly exposed to the risk.

Through a risk and vulnerability analysis, risks to personnel, assets, environment and loss of service performance are recognised and managed. Safetecs structured procedures fulfill regulatory demands and help you make the most effective decisions, reduce costs and make your services more robust.
