What is an Emergency Response Team?
An Emergency Response Team or Incident Response Team is a crew or a group of people trained to
respond to emergencies such as an industrial accident, an explosion, and other disasters. These
people are trained, tested, certified and equipped with the standard operating process to handle an
emergency. They are physically and mentally ready to act and react appropriately and quickly to
ensure people and resource safety.
Having an Emergency Response Team (ERT) in place is a smart move considering the calamities and
the hazards that can occur at any moment without any forewarning. It is statutorily needed as well
as the right practice to be prepared for a crisis rather than panic at the last moment. Access Control
Systems are very helpful in managing your resources; keeping you ready for any emergency and
making sure your resources are utilized in the right way. Solus solutions are designed to detect
incidents and sound off an alarm.
Training your employees on how to react in case of an emergency and electing emergency wardens
can really strengthen the safety of your employees and save lives. An Emergency Response Team
should contain at least one Emergency Warden and one First-Aider for every 20 employees. The
Wardens need to be thorough with the layout of the whole facility and all the escape routes. They
also need to be available throughout the working hours. If your company has multiple shifts, at least
one Warden and one First-aider need to be available in each shift for every 20 employees.
Managing the headcount for the Warden and First-aider in each team and each facility can be quite
a task. That’s where an Access Control Systems and Attendance System come into place. Access
Control and Attendance Systems keep a headcount of the number of employees present every day
and depending on the roles assigned to the individual, make sure that each team and facility has
adequate Wardens and First-aiders present at all times. Biometric Access Control and Attendance
Systems are the solutions for companies that have a likelihood of hazards and need to maintain a
great deal of confidentiality.
