Contingency Planning


Contingency Planning

An effective contingency plan not only ensures swift response and cuts unnecessary costs when managing an event, but routine plan review can also drive compliance and prevent incidents before they occur.

Aegis takes a practical approach to developing your contingency plans. We design your plan with practical use in mind specifically for the benefit of the target plan user, i.e., those who will be responsible for implementing the plan. The more cumbersome the plan, the less likely the user will engage in meeting the plan objectives. Our experts have extensive knowledge and experience in developing comprehensive plans for a variety of clients at different organizational levels.

We continue to work with many of our clients for years after the implementation of a plan.  This ensures upkeep of required documentation and adherence to best practices and is a service that contributes to mitigation of risk.

Before problems arise, a plan will prepare for unexpected occurrences and possible risk. Every successful plan developed fulfills the environmental regulatory requirements contained in the Oil Pollution Act, the Clean Water Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

Aegis specializes in integrating plans that satisfy Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC), state-specific oil or material handling plans and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) requirements into one concise, yet comprehensive, document to ease the burden (time and cost) of maintaining the accuracy of multiple plans while improving plan implementation. Aegis has extensive experience in developing RCRA Emergency Preparedness and Contingency Plans for large quantity generators of hazardous waste.

An effective contingency plan is composed of timely responses, decrease in unnecessary costs when managing an issue, and routine plan reviews that drive compliance and prevent emergencies before they occur. Some incidents can have a great impact in the facility, but with a contingency plan in place, every decision will save time and improve communication and coordination procedures.

Aegis helps you answer the following:

What problem can arise?

How will we react to the situation?

How can we best prepare for this occurrence?

Our contingency planning will help analyze each possible incident and its possible impact. Then, after careful consideration of all options, determine the most useful, systematic plan to avoid hazard or harm to employees and the workplace itself. The contingency plan also includes a recovery strategy for dealing with the disruption’s aftermath and how to proceed.

Aegis has helped organizations design and implement effective and responsive “Plan B” contingency plans for years and have successfully developed plans that have saved facilities and workers from critical incidents. Your facility should have a strategic contingency plan to promote preparedness, decrease panic, and minimize loss.
