Infographic: How Prepared is Your Workplace?

On average, we spend over 50 hours a week away from our homes. Chances are, if a sudden disaster occurs, it could be when we are away from our home base and preps.

A disaster plan is only as good as its ability to be understood by a group of individuals. Ensuring that your workplace has an emergency plan and supplies will help employees adapt to the disaster easier.

Workplaces should have preparedness protocols in place for fires, natural disasters, robberies, cyber attacks, federal crisis and PR disasters.

Create a Workplace Emergency Supply

Many of the following emergencies can be sudden in natural and a workplace emergency supply can help. Since office spaces are short on space, keep portability and lightweight preps in mind. You can easily store a backpack of supplies in the office or store them in your vehicle. A decent sized backpack can easily fit in a small workplace or cubicle and hold a supply of emergency supply items. Some items to keep in mind are:

  • Have a supply of shelf stable foods or MREs
  • Portable water filtration system or purification tablets
  • Extra water
  • Flashlight
  • Whistle
  • Athletic socks
  • Pair of walking shoes or hiking boots
  • Small medical kit
  • Local map
  • Face mask
  • Emergency contact numbers
  • Extra money (large bills and loose change for calls)
  • Cell phone charger
  • Multipurpose tool
  • Small radio
  • Copy of workplace emergency exits
