Business Continuity - Earthquakes
Earthquakes occur Globally! Think it can't happen to you?
How quickly your company gets back to business after an earthquake often depends on the emergency planning you do today. Though each situation is unique, any organization can be better prepared if it plans carefully, puts emergency procedures in place, and practices for all kinds of emergencies.
This planning document outlines common sense measures you can take to start getting ready and provides practical information to help you plan for your company’s future. A commitment to planning will help support your employees, your clients, the community, and the local economy. It also protects your business investment and gives your company a better chance for survival.
Go beyond planning and frequently practice what you intend to do during a disaster. Conduct regularly scheduled education and training seminars to provide coworkers with information, identify needs and develop preparedness skills. Include disaster
training in new employee orientation programs. If you rent, lease or share office space, coordinate and practice evacuation and other emergency plans with other businesses in your building or facility. Evaluate and revise processes and procedures based on lessons learned and keep training records. Drills and exercises will help you prepare.
