We hope they never happen, but if they do, you want to be ready for an emergency. Pre-planning reduces response time and helps people understand their role and responsibilities.
Emergencies may include medical, fire, severe weather, hazardous material spill, odors, water infiltration, robbery or theft, and power outage. What other emergencies could occur at your workplace?
Think ahead: I an emergency of one of these types occurred, what is your response? Do you need to evacuate the building? How will you account for everyone? Where will employees and visitors gather? How do you notify emergency services? Your electric provider? Your gas company?
There are many questions to ask. Watch for more posts covering different types of emergencies. Contact us if there are some specific ones you would like to see.
