Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the significance of corporate awareness in initiating an effective Emergency Response Plan (ERP) at a manufacturing company in Senawang, Negeri Sembilan. Five independent variables were used to justify its relationship with corporate awareness: roles and responsibilities, chain of command, control of plant, training and liaison with emergency services. A total number of 210 employees were chosen as respondents for the study but only 145 employees responded to the survey. The Pearson correlation analysis was used to determine if there was a significant relationship between corporate awareness and all the independent variables. The findings showed positive relationship between corporate awareness and all the independent variables (roles and responsibilities, chain of command, control of plant, training and liaison with emergency services). Multiple regressions showed that only chain of command, control of plant and liaisons with emergency services were significant predictors of corporate awareness. It is also suggested that the study would have more significant results with more organization engage in this survey.
