Build a unit action plan

Everyone needs a plan. From the president's office to the lowly office of emergency management, based on the org chart. The reality is that every employee, every student, every faculty member, needs to receive information on what to do in an emergency. They need to know what to do when it happens. In fact, in Alberta, it is a requirement under Part 7 of the OHS Code, and similar legislation (in BC, it's Section 4.13).

Your Unit Action Plan (UAP) provides that information. It will cover your current workplace, or work unit, not the units you are responsible for.

A good plan is one that is applicable to your current workplace, shared, and reviewed/updated annually.

Building your plan takes only a few minutes. To start your plan, follow the linked instructions to create a Unit Emergency Plan (UAP) for your unit. An email will be sent to the plan creator on the plan anniversary with a reminder to review. This new format will reflect any emergency plan changes made by Emergency Management.

Note 1: Enterprise Square tenants should consult the ESQ Emergency Procedures Document.

Note 2: U of A units located in AHS buildings should consult their AHS contacts for emergency codes and procedures in those facilities.
