Emergency response planning in the rail industry
The aim of this paper is to stress the need for emergency response planning in the rail industry, emphasising the need for continuous review and testing. Nowadays most organisations have emergency plans but it is always beneficial to review your plan—to do a“health check” of it. When was your plan last updated? All too often planning is put off at the expense of day to day operations and time constraints. It is easy to be complacent with an attitude of “it will never happen to us”. However, emergencies have an unfortunate habit of never occurring at the right or the expected time.
