A suicide bomber attempting to blow up the NYC subway, nut jobs plowing through pedestrians, active shooters killing innocents, and deadly wildfires and hurricanes have saturated our news for months.
From workplaces like yours, lives have been taken, injuries sustained, and mental health eroded. Property ruined or damaged. Businesses in shreds. Jobs lost.
Whether you’re a business, nonprofit organization or government agency, you can’t stop crazy incidents like these.
But you can prepare for them. You can respond. And you can recover.
All-hazards planning is the solution
Every employer is required by law to have an Emergency Action Plan. What does that mean?
The NFPA national standard—to which you will be held—requires all-hazards planning and employee training. When you plan and train for all hazards, you’re prepared for your foreseeable circumstances—and ready for crazy.
In addition, your all-hazards planning and training ethic will give your people confidence in responding to anything. Their morale will also improve when you demonstrate commitment to their safety.
How do I know this?
I have trained 27,000 employees over the last 18 years—employees just like yours—in workplaces just like yours. At the end of training sessions, all trainees complete our confidential and anonymous survey. They hand them to me, not the boss.
The survey asks if they’re confident they can respond to any emergency, including crazy. Nearly all—98.5%—stated they are confident or very confident they can respond to crazy.
Many hand-write comments about being grateful for the safety training, learning what to do during a variety of emergencies, and how they see applying what they’ve learned to their personal life.
