As part of UPI’s ongoing safety training, the Company conducts a variety of internal emergency drills. UPI’s department managers, in conjunction with the Company’s Safety Department and Emergency Medical Technicians, plan and execute monthly drills designed to prepare UPI employees for real-life emergencies. The drills focus on a broad range of situations and issues, including the following:
- Man down, Injury &Rescue
- Personnel Accountability
- Shelter in Place
- Utility Shutdowns
These drills are typically performed without prior notice to the affected employees orthe first responders. Each drill concludes with a meeting – or debriefing -- in which the involved individuals discuss any questions, concerns or lessons arising out of the drill. The discussion is then documented and made available for employee review.
