Learning to Deal with Emergencies at the Workplace

Most managers and employees learn the skills related to their work and try to excel there. While there is no argument on the need for this, there are a few special skills that employees at all levels, be it managers or the sub staff, need to learn and be familiar with. It is a skill that is useful to such an extent that the organization that imparts these skills can save itself from physical ruin and save its employees’ lives.

What is this skill that it so important? It is the skill of employee preparedness in the event of a natural disaster. This is a skill that is often overlooked by most organizations, but teaching employees how to be resilient and to handle emergency situations such as an earthquake, hurricane, fires, power outages and the like is so important that it can save lives.

Having got used to living in the comfort of the workplace offered in the developed world, most of us employees are complacent in our attitude towards such situations. Most employees take nature and its behavior for granted to the extent that they tend to think that their place is insulated from natural disasters. This smugness needs to be corrected, because any workplace can become a target of natural disasters.

A learning session on this highly important, but neglected area of the workplace

How do employees learn to deal with these? Can these skills be imparted? Yes. The ways of doing it are what a webinar from TrainHR, a leading provider of professional trainings for the human resources industry, will be offering.

Doing all that is needed during emergencies

While emergency services are highly efficient and can be counted upon to help organizations in the rescue efforts needed during emergencies; the employee is a critical cog in the wheel in initiating and maintaining rescue efforts. Dr. Lewis will explain how employees need to group themselves and manage rescue efforts till the emergency services arrive or after their arrival.

At this webinar, Dr. Lewis will provide an overview of pre and post services and strategies that are designed to sustain workforce resilience.  This will be of very high value to personnel in organizations that deal with situations warranted by emergencies, such as all levels of administrative and supervisory personnel, HR, Legal, Security, Risk Management and Facilities.

During this webinar, Dr. Lewis will cover the following areas:

  • Assessing the work organization's culture
  • The types of events and the short and long range impact on an organization
  • Pre-event policies and programs and post-event services and strategies to maintain workforce viability
  • How to conduct an employee preparedness survey with a case presentation.
