New Parsons Hall Emergency Operations Plan Available

New Parsons Hall Emergency Operations Plan Available

May 07, 2013

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety has partnered with the UNH Chemistry Department and other campus stakeholders to develop and implement an Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) for the recently renovated Parsons Hall. Copies of the plan are available at the OEHS Emergency Procedures page.

The EOP details the actions that UNH employees will be expected to take in response to an emergency at Parsons Hall and identifies certain individuals that have an emergency response role. It establishes guidelines, procedures, and organizational structure for response to potential critical incidents that may occur in the building.

The plan is written to specifically address emergencies that may occur at Parsons Hall which primarily houses the Chemistry Department, including a large number of research and instructional chemistry laboratories. 

The purpose of the plan is to establish clear guidelines regarding UNH employees’ responses to emergencies, including fire, chemical spills or releases, power outages, acts of violence and injury/illness. 

This EOP was developed to provide for the safety of the UNH community. It is modeled after UNH’s Emergency Procedures Program and follows the basic elements contained in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulation for emergency action planning contained in 29 CFR 1910.38.
