Workplace Emergency Preparedness

Ask an expert

Be optimally prepared for emergencies in workplaces

in your industrial plant critical situations can arise at any time. All the more important is a detailed emergency plan, regular team training and the right escape & rescue equipment. This enables a rapid reaction and an effective emergency response. We support your emergency preparedness in the workplace with structured emergency management, specific escape equipment and professional emergency training.

Professional management of emergency plans

We know that sudden and fully unplanned situations with hazardous substances can occur within seconds and no escape-scenario is the same. Chemical and industrial plants are subject to high safety requirements, where safety managers have to manage the remaining risks in the best possible way. However, if serious incidents arise, such as toxic gas accumulation, exceeding explosion limits or other life-threatening events, emergency preparedness and emergency plans must be effective.

Emergency preparedness in the workplace

A functioning safety culture consists of solid risk analysis and planning, the right technical equipment, and particularly well-prepared and trained employees. A detailed escape and rescue plan is the basis for all measures emergency teams or plant fire brigades need to take in case of an incident.

Dräger offers you an extensive range of consulting and planning services for your safety management. We can support you with work-based alarm and hazard prevention plans, evacuation procedures and emergency plans.

Dräger solutions for escape and rescue operations

Dräger offers reliable personal protective equipment, rescue and escape chambers, know-how and realistic emergency training to help you cope with the the incident at hand.

Our filtering escape devices, for example, protect both your breathing and eyes from harmful gases released in a fire. Dräger escape hoods are easy to use even without training and provide the wearer with up to 15 minutes of protection to evacuate to a safe location.
