The Importance of an Emergency Contact List – Where is it Located?

When it comes to workplace safety, one of the most important things for a company is to have an up-to-date, readily available emergency contact list. In the event of accidents or emergencies, an emergency contact list can make a difference.

For this reason, it is essential that every company be well organized and update the list regularly. These contacts should contain all the information of people who may be needed in an emergency, such as local emergency services, the company’s occupational safety managers, doctors and other healthcare professionals.

For example, the list could include:

Local emergency services: phone numbers for police, fire department, ambulance services and emergency services.
Company occupational safety managers: people within the company who can provide assistance in the event of an incident or emergency situation.
Doctors and other healthcare professionals: names and phone numbers of doctors and other healthcare professionals who can be contacted in the event of a medical emergency.
Employee emergency contacts: names and phone numbers of employees’ relatives or friends who should be contacted if necessary.
IT security contacts: if the company has sensitive or confidential data, a list of IT security contacts should be included in the event of a system breach.
Service providers: if the company has critical service providers, such as electricity or water suppliers, their emergency phone numbers should be included.
Maintenance contacts: if the company has critical equipment or machinery, emergency phone numbers for maintenance technicians should be included.
Other information such as: the company address, directions for reaching it and instructions on what to do in an emergency.

It’s also important that all company employees, customers and regulatory bodies are informed of where the emergency contact list is located and how to access it if needed. The list should be easily accessible, for example by posting it in a common area of the office or sharing it via a digital document management platform like Certiblok.
