BOMA BC is a member of the Emergency Preparedness for Industry & Commerce Council (EPICC) and the Infrastructure Security Integrated Intelligence Scheme (ISIIS). To demonstrate our committment to educating the public, members and the commercial real estate industry in preparing for and responding to emergencies (earthquakes, terrorist activities, chemical/biological threats), the Association has formed an Emergency Preparedness Committee.
BOMA BC's emergency mass notification system allows BOMA to notify members of major emergencies affecting their tenants and businesses.
In partnership with:
The following is a list of resources compiled by the committee to assist you in preparing for emergencies.
Pandemic Planning Guide (April 2007)
This Planning Guide was developed by the participants of the National Industry Pandemic Planning Task Force ("the Task Force") in cooperation with the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) of Canada. The Guide layers industry-specific procedures, public domain responses and standard communication to
assist BOMA members and the Canadian commercial real estate industry with relevant information relating to property operations.
Due Diligence Checklist - OH&S
The Due Diligence Checklist was developed to help employers determine if they have sufficient documentation of an effective Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) Program. Other due diligence factors to consider include health and safety performance in the workplace, the employer's history of compliance with the Workers Compensation Act and OH&S Regulation, the degree of hazard associated with violations, etc. This checklist is only a guideline.
Workshop for Emergency Preparedness
The BOMA Emergency Response Task Group held a workshop for over 80 BOMA members. Due to the success of the first workshop, the Task Group is developing more to assist members in Emergency Preparedness and other Life Safety topics. The above resource is a downloadable version of the slides from this workshop.
