5.3.3 Training, education, testing and validation

An audited plan has not been proved to work. It has simply been checked for major omissions. The next stages are to train people in the plan's contents and procedures, and to validate the plan. The relationship between â€˜training and educationâ€™ and â€˜plan validation and testingâ€™ is a bit ambiguous. It could be argued that it is not worth putting a lot of resources into training until the plan has been validated. On the other hand, a plan cannot be properly validated unless the people va

5.7 Emergency planning – the process

Usually, when emergency plans are prepared the hazards already exist, and may have been there for some time. The liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) stores in the middle of many cities are a classic example. They â€˜grewâ€™ in the former coal yards adjacent to railways. Their presence may be accepted, whereas a new development with similar hazard potential might give rise to objections.

In the preparation of plans, the phenomenon known as â€˜agenda settingâ€™ must be taken into account. This

5.5 Emergency planning as an organisational management function

If emergency services' EPOs plan to respond to other people's emergencies, people managing a business activity with major incident potential have a different perspective. They have to respond to emergencies within their own organisation. In effect, if an incident occurs, the organisation is itself in a crisis, with functionality impaired. All of this comes into the corporate governance area and the implications of internal control. This requires companies to ensure that they have a sound syst

5.4 Emergency planning as a public protection activity

Uniformed emergency services â€“ police, fire authorities and ambulance services â€“ and organisations such as NHS hospitals, have an obvious role in the response to civil emergencies. Local authorities have an important, although less clearly defined, role. This is based on a mixture of specific legal duties coupled to a general â€˜duty of careâ€™ to maintain essential services even in an emergency. Much of this section describes the work of local authority emergency planning officers (EPOs)

5.3 Emergency planning as a formal requirement

Several pieces of legislation make the preparation of emergency plans a statutory requirement. The European Directive on the control of major accident hazards (Council of the European Union, 1996a), the â€˜Seveso II Directiveâ€™, outlines the planning requirements for industrial sites with large inventories of hazardous substances. In the UK, the requirements of this directive have been incorporated into the Control of Major Accident Hazards Regulations (Health and Safety Executive, 1999a). I

5.2 Why plan?

Captain James Lovell chose the title â€˜A successful failureâ€™ for an article on the Apollo 13 Lunar Mission. The failure was that the lunar landing was abandoned. The success was that, although an explosion blew a gaping hole in the spacecraft three-quarters of the way to the moon and knocked out the electrical systems as well as the service module's engine, the three astronauts returned safely to Earth. Can you think of a better example of the value of emergency planning?

3.1 Types of incident

Now we can progress to an examination of some incidents by studying selected reports and publications.

Returning to the word â€˜accidentâ€™, we can cite another definition:

An accident is an undesired event which results in physical harm and/or property damage. It usually results from a contact with a source of energy above the threshold limit of the body or structure.

7.1 Some basic principles of religious studies

Remember that in Section 4 I suggested that possible reasons for studying religion could be clustered together under two broad headings:

1. to understand the society in which we live, the culture we inherit and the wider world of which we are a part;

2. as part of a personal quest for religious

6.3 Setting things apart

The tendency within religious behaviour to set things apart from the everyday does not just apply to time and place but also to ideas of authority (leaders and texts), to beliefs more generally, to institutions and to aspects of behaviour as, for example, in dress and diet. In fact, the concept of â€˜religion/religiousâ€™ is often set over and against the concept of the â€˜temporalâ€™ and the â€˜secularâ€™, which both suggest an outlook that is concerned solely with this world, the here and n
