Details

This guidance has been issued by the Civil Contingencies Secretariat.

Its purpose is to articulate the principles of integrated safety management, as a reference for those with responsibility for public safety in complex and built environments. It is not a handbook for safety managers or an operations manual and does not attempt to deal with safety issues at that level of detail. Rather, it is capstone guidance, which concerns itself with issues relating to multi-agency integration and coherence in public safety management. It draws on the established body of good practice and guidance that informs the work of emergency planners and responders in the wider resilience community.
