Overview

The Civil Contingencies Act 2004 modernised the UK's approach to disaster and emergency management, taking into account the kinds of threats the country faces in the 21st century, including terrorist threats and threats to the environment. This third edition of the Tolley's Handbook of Disaster and Emergency Management has been fully updated to cover the topics and themes reflected in the Act, and collates all the key components of disaster and emergency planning for both the public and the private sector, covering both man-made and natural disasters. Specifically written from a UK practitioner's point of view, it helps readers to understand and formulate disaster and emergency policies and systems for their workplace. It will also help organisations to ensure business continuity and safeguard the health and safety of their staff in the event of a disaster. This practical approach makes the Handbook an invaluable resource for all those with responsibility for planning how to deal with major incidents or managing risk in the public and private sectors in all industries. The new edition has been updated in line with the latest legislation:
• Civil Contingencies Act 2004
• Amendment to the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) Regulations
• Corporate Manslaughter Bill
