New protocol is for built environment professionals in all stages of the disaster cycle
The RICS disaster management commission and the University of Salford have produced a disaster management process protocol for use by built environment professionals in all stages of the disaster cycle, from prevention and preparation, through relief and longer term recovery.
It provides a comprehensive framework for ensuring that disaster-related projects are approached in a logical and effective manner. It is a first step to attempt to coordinate the work of different types of professionals in disaster relief, recovery and prevention.
Salford produced its original protocol back in 1998 to address lack of coherence of processes in construction work, as compared to other sector such as retail. It has been adopted by government and major firms and provides the foundations for the new protocol.
