Contingency and disaster plans are a part of the regulatory compliance landscape. Facilities develop and maintain plans to address numerous regulatory requirements, but are such plans functionally viable in a real emergency? The objectives of the paper include examining EPA, OSHA, and DOT planning requirements, and then building truly integrated contingency plans and "all hazards" planning. Special emphasis is placed on adding terrorism and violent acts to plans including bomb threats, suspicious packages, cyber attacks and sabotage.
