Preparing to Withstand the Worst: A Safety Professional’s Role in Planning and Managing Emergencies - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Emergencies cannot be accurately predicted but they can be anticipated, and advance planning can make a difference in limiting the effects. In this webinar, learn how to use emergency planning to marshal and organize the resources of your organization to protect your employees and critical business functions.



As the COVID-19 outbreak has shown, business operations can change nearly overnight as a result of an emergency—whether in the form of a natural disaster, a pandemic, a chemical release, or another unforeseen event. While most emergencies cannot be predicted with any degree of certainty, advance planning can help to mitigate the impact and ensure that your business survives the disruption. From making provisions to protect employees during a disaster to identifying critical staff and resources to planning for the physical safety and security of your facility, safety professionals play a key role in a business’s emergency preparation and response.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the key components of a business continuity/emergency response plan
  • Understand and follow best practices for communicating emergency plans to employees and providing appropriate training
  • Identify and make a plan for obtaining key supplies and resources during an emergency
  • Evaluate and test your emergency plans to identify and fix critical weaknesses
  • Coordinate with stakeholders throughout your organization to develop policies and procedures for the emergencies most likely to affect your facility
