Emergency response

Are you prepared?

There’s no greater responsibility than keeping your people safe in the event of an emergency. And with the world on alert for threats from effects of climate change, political unrest, food insecurity and other perhaps still-unknown dangers, it’s imperative to have an emergency response plan in place as part of your crisis management strategy.

An effective emergency response plan provides guidance for facilitating and organising employer and employee actions during a workplace emergency. Among them: life safety procedures to protect the well-being of any personnel who are impacted.

71% of organisations plan to further integrate emergency response planning into their broader resilience program.
