Emergency preparedness plan (EPP) is a systematic management of activities involving a material degree of risk of loss or other damage to the surroundings (people, property and environment), and the boundary of accident recovery plan (ARP). The main purpose of the program is giving a safety management system to each facility in order to give an ability to prevent accident and to control accident immediately. The EPP includes not only typical safety-related documentations such as material safety data sheet (MSDS), standard operation procedure (SOP), emergency response plan (ERP), but also geometric information system (GIS) and accident recovery plan of each facility. EPP is established based on the preliminary safety analysis involving risk identification, assessment and prevention plans. Also the program is helpful for government or related agencies to control a number of accidents in small-scale companies in the whole country. Since the EPP have been revised in 2006, we have known that the 70% of related agencies are the small-scale companies and they have a problem that they can't make the report by oneself. And more than 30% of related agencies submit the disabled reports. Therefore we should study the method to improve effectiveness. The final purpose of this research is to make a supporting program of EPP. And we find a problem in the former program for the effectiveness operation and settlement by this research. Then we should minimize the waste time and provide the convenience to user.
