Prepare for an Emergency

Key Points

  • An emergency can occur at any moment of the day and can strike in many ways. It could be an emergency medical situation that strikes when an employee has a heart attack or stroke. It could be a weather emergency when an unexpected earthquake strikes the office. It could be a man-made mistake such as if an employee starts a fire.
  • Being properly prepared for whatever occurs is the only way to make it through these situations with minimal damage.
  • No matter how careful an employer plans, it cannot foresee every situation that might occur. Having general emergency standards, in addition to the more emergency-specific guidelines, will help employers be prepared when the unexpected happens.
