Is Your Workplace Ready When a Crisis Hits?

A disaster preparedness plan is a must, not only to fight today’s issues but also for tomorrow’s unknown problems

The incredible speed at which COVID-19 has affected everyday life should be not only a lesson about our current procedures and measures to fight disease but also a future warning that disasters will occur, often when least expected. Whether that disaster is a widespread illness, acute injuries or even inclement weather, your workplace needs to tackle these unfortunate situations head-on. That process begins with the development and implementation of a comprehensive business continuity plan.

Motivational speaker Brian Tracy once said, “A clear vision, backed by definite plans, gives you a tremendous feeling of confidence and personal power.” The same applies to disaster management in the workplace.
