Prepare for emergency
They say life is what happens when you are busy making other plans. The same thing applies to an emergency. It is what happens when you don’t expect it. But that does you can have plans in place to meet these challenges.
When it comes to planning for emergencies, there are certain things you need to do to ensure that you will have an effective response to every emergency event. The most important thing about emergency response to that it has to be done fast. Thus, there must be adequate training beforehand, and there is a need to have the resources in place to minimise the effects of such an emergency on the people, the organisation, and the environment. It is necessary to have procedures and plans in place for every event that could happen. While it is not possible to prepare for everything, it is possible to identify the probable problems and have plans in place to tackle them.
The emergencies that an organisation can encounter differ from one industry to the other, and other factors such as size and location also play a role. Emergencies can include risks like fire, medical emergencies, explosion, and even more hazardous ones. Natural disasters are also an emergency.
An emergency plan will incorporate a practical assessment of the hazards and how it affects the work processes and workplace. The triggers of the emergency and consequences also need to be identified as well as External Hazards. All these will play a role in developing an emergency response plan for your organisation.
