It Couldn't Happen Here...

Disasters both natural and manmade can strike quickly and with devastating results. Disasters, such as Floods, tornadoes, and chemical can not only cause massive damage to your business but can prevent you, your employees, and your customers from getting to your facility.

Have a Plan

Prepare and disseminate an emergency plan describing what supervisors and employees should do when faced with a disaster. Consider three subjects when developing your disaster plan: Human Resources, Physical Resources and Business Continuity.

Think about how a disaster could affect your employees, customers and workplace. Think about how you could continue doing business if the area around your facility is closed or streets are impassable. Think about what you would need to serve your customers even if your facility or supply chain were closed.

Stay Informed

Purchase a weather radio with an alert feature and local discrimination capability. This will allow you and your employees to monitor weather conditions and take appropriate action.

Protect Your Employees and Customers

Select the best protective area for people to seek shelter, and clearly post the location throughout you facility.

Stock Up

Keep emergency supplies handy, including: Flashlights with extra batteries, First Aid Kits, Tools, Food and water for employees and customers to use during a period of unexpected confinement.
