Emergency Planning Products

With 100-plus years of collective experience, our team can create any kind of map for emergency planning throughout the oil and gas, government, education, industrial and environment sectors, including:

  • Emergency Response Plan Overview Maps more...

    This map provides a large-scale visual representation of all locations for client operations covered by a specific emergency response plan. This map provides users with the ability to identify their company assets and emergency planning zones in relation to major towns and cities, major highways, provincial boundaries, First Nations, provincial parks, and major water bodies.

  • Site-Specific Maps more...

    This map focuses on a specific area of the client’s emergency response plan, which is custom-scaled to best meet your spatial needs. For sour operations, the map detail includes, but is not limited to surface locations, emergency shut down valves, areas of interest, roads, client assets, third-party operations, and other map features impacted by an emergency planning zone and the surrounding area. Satellite imagery or elevation data can be incorporated dependant on client need. With a Site-Specific Map, users gain a substantial understanding of each emergency planning zone’s impact to the surrounding area.

  • Access Maps more...

    Access Maps provide efficient directions and a visual route to guide emergency services to the site. Our field technicians ground truth the roads in the area to ensure the directions provided are accurate. Essential data, including road names, mileage markers, areas of interest, and radio frequencies for radio controlled roads are collected and incorporated into the map. As part of H2Safety’s rigorous quality control system, we review the route and directions with client operators in the area to ensure map accuracy.

  • Operations Overview Maps more...

    Operations Overview Maps give clients a complete visual overview of their organization and operations. These maps clearly identify all operating areas anywhere in the world and can be broken down and colour-coded to compliment your company’s organizational structure. These maps outline all ERP, site-specific, and operating areas, and include contact information for operators, foremen, and other important personnel at each site.

  • Drilling Maps more...

    Drilling Maps are used for both sour and sweet drilling operations during any stage of drilling and completions. Drilling Maps clearly identify the emergency planning zone or assigned hazard area for your drilling operations. Additional important features, such as the lease area, roadblock locations, surface developments, and drilling paths are overlaid onto current imagery or detailed GIS base maps. All H2Safety Drilling Maps comply with site-specific ERP mapping guidelines.

  • Geographical Response Plan Maps more...

    H2Safety Geographical Response Plan Mapping ensures your organization is prepared to respond to environmental incidents, such as spills into a waterbody. These maps identify high-risk water crossings and all existing or possible control points downstream from potential spill sites. H2Safety calculates average surface velocity rates for watercourses impacted downstream to determine the rate and distance at which your spill will travel. Kilometre markers, time-lapsed, access points and more are all visualized on our GIS mapping to help you make the right decisions on spill response.

  • Spill Inundation Mapping more...

    H2Safety specializes in mapping potential spill hazards. Spill Inundation maps use surface topography and elevation within proximity to your site to model and clearly display the potential hazards and aftermath of an on-site spill.

  • Response Time Mappings more...

    H2Safety uses specialized GIS Analysis tools to determine and display the response time to an incident from multiple locations. We create time interval buffers based on complex transportation routing algorithms and overlay them on an overview map. This map ensures users have a dependable estimate of response time.

  • Pipeline System Schematics more...

    Schematics provide an overview of the client’s operation, with a focus on the connectivity of the gathering system. Pipeline identification, substance type, diameter size, valve locations, to and from locations, flow direction and third-party tie-ins are shown in detail on this map type.

  • Spill Inundation Mappings
