Workplace emergency planning can be a matter of life or death. It’s tough to think clearly and logically during a crisis. Anticipating the unexpected and preparing an emergency response plan goes a long way in minimizing losses to human life and organizational operations. Having an effective emergency plan also helps in complying with various federal, state and local laws, standards and regulations.

Emergency planning is as fundamental as any business strategy. Emergency plans require that one identifies possible threats and develops medical, rescue and hazard control procedures. Also, establishing routes and exits, appointing coordinators and emergency personnel, and providing training to employees for an emergency is a critical part of the process.

The audio conference by AudioSolutionz will provide insights and help attendees understand their obligations under laws, regulations and standards related to emergency preparedness. It will also provide insights into the affects of lawsuits on their organization and help them create a compliant emergency plan. The conference will help managers understand how to re-evaluate current planning and anticipate employee and client responses that may hurt the organization’s disaster response. It will also outline what assistance can be expected from municipalities in the event of an emergency.

Creating emergency plans and training employees can be a difficult task, especially since the situations to anticipate and prepare for can be numerous. This audio conference will help professionals understand the vast and constantly changing standards and regulations governing emergency planning and avoid the common mistakes organizations often make while creating emergency plans.

AudioSolutionz, the country’s leading business enhancing information provider, will conduct a session on Thursday, February 26, 2015, where expert speaker Bo Mitchell will help an organization create effective emergency plans and avoid lawsuits and penalties.
