EMERGENCY PLANNING and DISASTER MANAGEMENT

As the world faces a greater incidence of both natural and man-made disasters, governments and companies are realizing they must be prepared to face these challenges. Recent accidents in Canada, Spain and the US highlight the vulnerabilities of communities to industrial and transportation accidents involving hazardous materials. Severe weather with greater risks of ice storms, hurricanes and tornados can bring cataclysmic consequences to the unprepared. Equally important is the imperative to develop a robust recovery capability.

We are engaged in Emergency Planning & Disaster Management in Canada, Eastern Europe and South America. Whether you are a small business, an industry leader, or either a municipal or federal government, we can assess your needs and develop plans and training tailored to fit your requirements.

RISK ASSESSMENTS and MITIGATION MEASURES

RISK ASSESSMENTS and MITIGATION MEASURES

Too many infrastructure projects lack sound risk management assessments. Many corporations make the mistake of commencing operations (with the commitment of huge sums in investment) without understanding the risks and, more important, developing the contingencies for mitigation or avoidance. Consequently, the project is in jeopardy and owners are open to charges of a failure to conduct the necessary due diligence. More regrettable is the incurred incremental costs in time and money to take corrective actions that should have been foreseen and addressed in the work schedule and resource allocation. We offer expertise in developing an analytical environmental horizon to address local, regional and global influences that directly and indirectly affect your operations.

BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANNING

BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANNING

Governments, Corporations and Municipalities face myriad threats to their operations severe weather, natural disasters, industrial accidents, pandemics, terrorism, corporate espionage and upheaval in financial markets can bring cataclysmic consequences. Business Continuity Plans help minimize impacts and prepare your institution for a rapid recovery. We focus on a strong risk management analysis linked to a comprehensive business impact assessment with the requisite recommendations for mitigation measures. But a plan is useless if your staff is not comfortable and confident in its execution. We develop training programs that build that confidence. These can be limited to a series of tutorial packages or the delivery of comprehensive exercises.

LOGISTICS and SUPPLY CHAIN PLANNING

LOGISTICS and SUPPLY CHAIN PLANNING

Exploration and discovery of encouraging results are grounds for celebration. But all successful drilling, mining and infrastructure projects are predicated on a sound logistics plan to ensure resource availability is synchronized to meet operational needs. Logistics is a complex business that touches virtually all aspects of your project from securing suppliers, identifying on site inventories, arranging transport, securing (and retaining) skilled and unskilled labour and maintaining your fleets of vehicles and suites of equipment. Logistics plans must meticulously choreograph an integrated response to these competing demands. We offer both preliminary logistics assessments and comprehensive planning to support the unique challenges of operating in challenging environments.

TRAINING

TRAINING

Projects must address environmental, labour and health and safety hazards and risks for the duration of a project. OSONS Solutions offers training in disaster management, contingency and business continuity planning. We design and deliver crisis response training and exercises to ensure your company`s response is immediate and effective.

FEASIBILITY STUDIES & THIRD PARTY REVIEWS

FEASIBILITY STUDIES & THIRD PARTY REVIEWS

When contemplating a project we strongly recommend owners acquire the best understanding possible of the magnitude of the challenges they face. Boards of Directors and Corporate Officers often find the demands for due diligence troubling. An independent third party review can confirm the project plan is sound and is proof of your commitment to diligent project stewardship.

OSONS Solutions frequently contracts the services of Overwatch Research to conduct research for its many projects.
