Training Employees To Mitigate Disaster
In the case of a fire, flood, or severe structural damage to a property some inhabitants may need to be evacuated. Conduct dry runs of evacuations, testing communication systems, and controls, as practicing reporting emergencies through scenarios can be helpful in training teams in crisis response. A clearly defined emergency plan that is consistently reviewed and rehearsed limits business interruption during an emergency event. Below are a few key areas of emergency management that can benefit your West Palm Beach business.
Designate a flow of information within internal staff and contractors as well as externally to clients, customers, and the greater community. Establish a chain of command and clear procedure for reporting incidents within your office or business spaces. Communication platforms that allow for mobile application users can be incredibly convenient. Run drills where they practice leadership tasks and critical thinking skills. Encourage the team (both in management and other departments) to follow local and state weather advisories.
Empowering Employees With Proper Tools
Emergency management training goes beyond mandatory training from meeting OSHA requirements. Each business will naturally follow its own industry’s best practices when it comes to ensuring a safe and efficiently run operation. Simplify the process by having a central plan for the team to reference in case they need to address water damage, fire damage, or storm damage emergency. The Emergency Ready Profile is a customized guide to mitigating disaster in your specific space. The plan instructs your team on vital access and control points on the property, who to contact, and allows them to quickly report the damage.
