Presented by Glenn C. Clapp CSP, EFO, CHMM, CFPS Safety and Health Specialist, NC State University Industry Expansion Solutions (IES)
This webinar is for all businesses, owners, safety directors, and safety managers.
Disasters come in all shapes and sizes! Hurricanes, tornadoes, fires, chemical spills, and outbreaks of illness are just a few examples. No matter the type of disaster, a company can be quickly thrown into disarray. Supply chains may be broken, employees might be unable to come to work, or critical facilities and equipment could be damaged. Being prepared for disasters should be as high a priority for businesses as having a growth plan for the future. This workshop will lead you through the details that need to be considered when developing a Disaster Preparedness Plan.
