Contingency and Crisis Management Plans

Emergency and Internal Operations Plans (IOP) are operational decision-aid tools that can be used in-house and by External Emergency Services if and when a contingency occurs.
Regulatory references
The Internal Operations Plan (POI) is the regulatory contingency plan within the meaning of Article R.512-29 of the Environmental Code, which is applicable to certain Facilities Classified for Environmental Protection (ICPE) (any such ICPE Facility  subject to authorization and special cases: covered warehouses of combustible products of over 50,000 sq. m and depots of paper and paperboard of more than 100,000 m3).
An Internal Operations Plan describes the organisational rules, the facilities set up and available on an industrial site to minimise the consequences of a potentially major contingency for people, property and the environment.
The "Internal Operations Plan" is drafted using a deliberately deterministic logic. It takes as its basic assumption the occurrence of events liable to lead to accidents of the "upper-bound scenario" type.
It is not designed to provide succinct technical and organisational solutions to all the accidents liable to occur on a site.
The plan therefore focuses on managing the "significant and representative" accidents thatmay occur, types of fire, explosion, spills of liquids, atmospheric dispersion of toxic substances, etc.
For each of these accidents, the following are defined :
  • the methods for detecting the accidents,
  • the means and organisation to be implemented in order to eliminate or limit the accident (extinction, containment, etc.),
  • possible extensions of the accident to other facilities (including the so-called "domino" effects),.
Our support is provided in several phases :
  • Definition and validation of the framework of the "IOP" document
  • Definition of the crisis management organization,
  • Validation of the effectiveness of the organization through practical exercises and tests of the IOP can be arranged.

A contingency can have serious consequences for the survival of a business (accident affecting people or the environment, loss of utilities, withdrawal of a product, loss of a sole supplier).
The implementation of a business continuity plan (BCP) is a strategic choice which consists in implementing an operational emergency solution for the identified disaster scenarios..

Your goals :

  • Ensure the sustainability of the company's vital activities (control the consequences and limit the impacts of major endogenous and exogenous contingencies),
  • Financially assume its share of liability for the contingency and facilitate the transfer of production to (an)other site(s),
  • Protect the company from a loss of activity which can be fatal in highly competitive branches of industry,
  • Boost its image with respect to its customers, suppliers and partners..
 We assist you during the different phases of the BCP :
  • Vulnerability analysis
  • Definition of the framework and purpose of the BCP (restart of activities)
  • Definition of the structure of the BCP
  • Drafting of the BCP
  • Support in setting-up the BCP and experimental testing.
