Emergency and Disaster Planning and Crisis Preparedness for Employers

December 6, 2019
Seminars, Speaking Engagements

In the fast-paced and always-changing dynamic of our world, the unfortunate reality is that any workplace may be faced with an unanticipated emergency, disaster or crisis at any time.

Such events may include any number of occurrences ranging from employee illness or injury to fire, flooding or significant weather incident. Beyond these more “typical” emergencies, employers now more than ever are faced with new and even more potential threats that could be lurking around the corner at any time. For example, in 2016, there were more than 2 million incidents of workplace violence reported across America. Regrettably, the possibility of an active shooter and other serious types of violence, cyber-attacks, and even terrorism, must be recognized as potential threats in today’s workplace.  With this in mind, employers have a responsibility to keep their employees and customers safe in the event of emergency, disaster, crisis or other hazards that affect the workplace.  Accordingly, every business can benefit by taking a cue from the Boy Scout motto to “Be Prepared.”  This session will explore steps that employers can take to prepare for those events that they hope will never come and how HR can help in this process.
