7.1 Decision-making

Decision-making processes and responsibilities relating to safety and security must be clear, and ensure that informed decisions can be taken and implemented as quickly as possible. The Safety and Security Officer should provide guidance for initial safety and security procedures, and ensure they are followed until the Safety and Security Plan for the emergency is completed.

Communicating decisions

  • Persons in charge and authorised to take such decisions must be clearly identified.
  • Communicate decisions to whomever it may concern with clarity and without delay
