Expecting the Unexpected - Are You Prepared for a Workplace Emergency?
Friday, May 18, 2018
American Society of Employers
This is a Members Only Event
Workplace violence, pandemic flu, “snowmaggedon,” power outages. These are just a few of the unexpected emergencies that can bring the day-to-day operations of an organization to a halt. Many employers have no protocols in place to deal with emergencies. Being prepared ahead of time and having a plan in place is key to surviving emergencies and keeping the organization up and running. HR professionals have a key role to play when it comes to disaster and operations continuity planning, because HR is the main communicator of workplace policies and procedures to employees.
ASE will host and facilitate a Roundtable discussion where members can share their experiences, identify current best practices and brainstorm with each other about issues and challenges they face regarding operational emergencies.
Topics for discussion include the following:
- Workplace violence awareness and prevention
- Developing an emergency response plan
- Natural disaster preparedness
- Responding to pandemic illnesses (e.g.,swine flu, measles)
- Handling employee suicide threats
- Emergency-triggered pay and leave related issues
This program is for ASE members only. If you are interested in learning more about an ASE membership, please contact George Brown or call 248.223.8019
