Disasters—Natural & Man-Made: Strategies on How to Train Workers to Stay Safe & How to Keep Your Business Running - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to train workers to be safe during natural and man-made disasters and keep your business operations running.


 

Increased incidents of active shooters in the workplace, massive flooding in the Midwest, predictions of a fire season in the West that will be worse than last year, as well as the usual incidents of fires and explosions in workplaces, all necessitate that employers have a defined as well as flexible plan in place to maintain worker safety and business continuity.

But, how often should employees be trained as to the elements of the emergency action plan? In an emergency, is it better to evacuate or shelter-in-place? How do we keep important business information secure if a disaster strikes? What actions should employees take if there’s an active shooter in the building? And, are evacuation route maps required?

These questions and many more will be answered in this on-demand webinar. 

You’ll learn how to: 

  • Recognize the disasters that could occur in your workplace and locale
  • Understand the elements that make an emergency action plan work
  • Determine the decisions that need to be made to make your evacuation plan effective
  • Identify the factors in the workplace that could potentially result in fires or explosions
  • Avoid worker safety training missteps that could backfire on you if a disaster strikes 
  • Implement measures to protect your data and equipment

 

About Your Presenter:

Lucien G. CantonLucien G. Canton, CEM
Emergency Management Consultant
Lucien G. Canton, CEM (LLC)

When Lucien Canton talked his way into the San Francisco emergency operations center to offer his services during the Loma Prieta earthquake he never expected that it would spark a career change that would involve him in Federal disaster planning at the national level and see him appointed by Mayor Willie L. Brown, Jr in 1996 as the Director of Emergency Services for San Francisco. 

He has served in over seventeen presidentially-declared disasters and on an elite national response team and, over the years, has emerged as a major thought leader in emergency management, advocating the use of management concepts to professionalize a field that is often mischaracterized as a technical discipline. A frequent speaker at national conferences and guest lecturer at universities both in the United States and abroad, Canton’s book, Emergency Management: Concepts and Strategies for Effective Programs, is used as a textbook for both graduate and undergraduate courses. As a consultant, Canton specializes in helping managers lead better in crisis by understanding the human factors often overlooked in crisis planning.
