IS YOUR BUSINESS PREPARED FOR EMERGENCY EVACUATION?
Nobody expects an emergency or disaster – especially one that affects them, their employees, and their business personally. Yet the simple truth is that emergencies and disasters can strike anyone, anytime, and anywhere. You and your employees could be forced into evacuating your corporate facilities when you least expect it.
With the current unpredictable climate of terrorism and violence, along with fire and weather emergencies, effective emergency evacuation plans are vital. Extra precautions and considerations need to be taken into account to accommodate the individual needs of staff and visitors with physical disabilities, those with sensory disabilities, and those who may lack understanding of a situation or be able to act quickly.
Identifying and preventing risk is a crucial part of emergency planning in the workplace and should never allow leaving anyone behind because they are differently abled. Pre-planning for a workplace emergency is imperative in today’s world. Workplace facilities must have the capacity to move all persons with disabilities to a safe location immediately in any emergency situation. Sheltering in place and waiting for first responders to arrive and rescue may not be safe or the best option. Robust emergency and evacuation planning should be implemented and comprehensively written with specific needs of individual staff requirements.
This plan should insure and include:
• Full risk identification and prevention
• Drills (identifying obstacles as they arise and before an emergency occurs)
• Equipment required and its usage
• Training needs
• Post drill evaluation to inform any changes necessary etc.
Staff and visitors with disabilities can also be at risk. Business administrators and staff should develop a plan to necessitate provisions and share the information with all people concerned. Through the entire process, the facility has a moral, ethical and legal responsibility to keep their whole community safe in the event of an emergency.
