4.6.3 crisis management plan


The Crisis Management Plan provides a guide detailing the steps that must be taken during the first hour of an emergency or crisis.  In some cases, the guidance goes beyond the first hour and will serve as the basis for long-term planning and management of an event.  The Crisis Management Plan (CMP) also defines the responsibilities during a crisis.  This plan will help protect life and property during and immediately following a major crisis or disturbance on the jobsite or at the corporate office.  Such situations may include, but are not limited to:

1.1   Fatality/Major Injury/Multiple Injury

1.2   Public Injury/Incident

1.3   Water Event

1.4   Fire/Explosion

1.5   Natural Disaster

1.6   Crane Collapse/Loss of Load

1.7   Structural Damage or Collapse

1.8   Utility Strike

1.9   Sustained Power Outage

1.10 Environmental Release

1.11 Terrorism/Workplace Violence

1.12 Cyber Attack

1.13 Continuity of Business

1.14 Incident Management Decision Tree

1.15 Incident Report & Investigation Form


The CMP serves 4 purposes.  It will:

2.1  Act as a planning guide, both at the project and corporate levels;

2.2  Serve as a ‘how-to/when-to’ guide during the actual crisis;

2.3  Serve as the basis by which we will train our employees to respond to a crisis;

2.4  Outline the responsibilities of staff members during a crisis.

It is critical that Lee Kennedy Co., Inc responds to all events in a timely matter. Information and direction must be given quickly to all field staff on the site. The incident response leader (or their designee) must give direction to team members in order to take appropriate action. In addition, the incident response leader must relay information about the event up the chain of management for their involvement and action.

Every Lee Kennedy Co., Inc. employee will be trained under this plan as well as his/her individual responsibilities during a crisis (i.e. response leader, gate tender, emergency vehicle escort, first aid responder, etc.). Employees will be trained during the initial employee safety orientation, annually, and if roles and/or responsibilities have changed.
