SERVPRO of Foxborough Uses Emergency Readiness Plan For Businesses
Would your business be ready if a disaster hits?
We never know when a disaster will happen, but it is important to have a plan ready. Without proper preparation, a minor emergency can have tragic consequences. That is why all employers should create a contingency plan.
An Emergency Readiness Plan must include the following:
- A procedure for reporting emergencies
- An evacuation plan
- A way to account for all employees after the evacuation
- Medical or rescue duties being performed by employees, if applicable
Your contingency plan could also include a description of the various alarms that will go off in the event of an emergency. Make sure that any disabled workers will be able to understand the alarm system.
You may also want to come up with an alternative location where everyone can gather in the event of a fire or other disaster.
Once the plan is in place, select an employee to lead the facility. That person will oversee the evacuation procedures and decide when to activate them.
Your employees should also be trained so they understand the plan. Consider holding practice drills to test, and you can then adjust it accordingly.
