Ignatov & Company Group - Engineering & Technology Consulting - Emergency planning & managementWe provide consulting services in emergency planning & management since 2000.

Protection of the assets, sale and supply pipelines, and staff from hazard risks (both natural and man-made) becomes more and more important task not only for the governments but also for business entities. Risk of natural disasters (especially in populous and industrialized areas) in combination with terroristic threats has strong impact over future plans and current costs with many large and mid-size companies.

Our services target a) organization of the corporate emergency management process, and b) making such corporate emergency policies compatible with the governmental rules and requirements.

These services are notably helpful for the Western companies that have manufacturing or logistic facilities in the emerging countries; we can assist in understanding regional and local disaster risks and probable response strategies as well as in development of the flexible and cost-efficient corporate emergency policy that will fit the national emergency regulation and requirements.

Here is what we do in emergency planning & management for our clients:

1. Emergency analysis

  • Identification of existing and potential natural and man-made hazards; we take into account not only threats for the main assets (such as production lines or HQ buildings) but also for the “auxiliary” activities such as warehousing, transportation routes, communication lines, etc. (that is too often underestimated with the companies)
  • Classification of the hazards by their probability, threat level, consequences, etc.
  • Analysis of the probable impact with different disasters over corporate supply pipelines
  • Analysis of the probable impact with different disasters over corporate sales pipelines

2. Emergency planning

  • Development of the probable emergency scenarios for different hazards and disasters
  • Development of corporate mitigation plans with complex measures for preventing transformation of hazards into disasters and reducing of the negative aftereffects
  • Development of corporate “emergency supply” plans that cover a) strategies for stock supply and inventory during the disasters (assuming the production lines are working); and b) strategies for supply/inventory of the emergency tools and equipment during the disasters (like how many water pumps to hold in inventory and where from and how to supply the extra number of pumps at strong flood)
  • Development of emergency response corporate plans with detailed response procedures for each type of disaster
  • Development of emergency communication plans that cover alarm system design, emergency contact list, alternatives to existing communication lines/methods at their damage
  • Development of emergency logistic plans that cover supply logistics, product delivery logistics, staff access routes (at unavailability of the main routes), evacuation routes, etc.
  • Development of the recovery plans for each type of disaster

3. Emergency management

  • Design of the optimal emergency management organization within the company (like emergency planning committee at the board of directors or emergency planning workgroup subordinated to the CEO, etc.)
  • Development of the corporate emergency management regulation (emergency corporate management policy; corporate labor safety rules; corporate contingency strategy that covers response plan, emergency supply plan, mitigation plan, etc.; emergency instructions for staff, etc.)

4. Permission and integration

  • Integration of the governmental requirements and rules into the corporate emergency plans and policies
  • Expertise for conformity of the corporate emergency plans and policies with the governmental requirements and rules
  • Development of permitting schemas (to receive certification and permission with governmental agencies) in a part of fire safety, sanitary-epidemiological safety, building safety, industrial safety in hazardous objects, safety of hazardous materials, safety of hazardous machinery, equipment and processes, etc.
  • Consulting at permitting and certification procedures
