Critical Incident Preparedness Plan (CIPP)

The health and safety of students, employees, contractors and visitors, as well as the protection of the property and environment are integral to Humber’s operations. Proper planning will ensure a timely and appropriate response to emergencies and critical incidents in compliance with applicable laws, legal codes of practice and industry standards.

This document describes the Critical Incident Preparedness Plan for Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning and the University of Guelph-Humber (which will be referred to as “Humber”) and assigns responsibilities for the development, implementation and maintenance of the plan.

The Critical Incident Preparedness Plan applies to all properties and departments at Humber, including employees, students, visitors and contractors. This plan establishes the basic framework for critical incident preparedness. It is not intended to cover every department’s needs. Therefore all departments are encouraged to supplement this plan to suit its own needs while remaining in compliance with this plan.

Critical incidents have been divided into two (2) categories to identify the level of urgency of each incident. The two (2) categories are Level 1 and Level 2. Level 1 being incidents that are of immediate risk to person(s) and or property; these would include, but are not limited to, hostage taking, active shooter, etc. Level 2 incidents are those that are of non-immediate or projected risk to person(s) and or property and these would include, but are not limited to, seismic event, ice storm, blackouts, etc.
