Emergency Response Planning for Business Endurance

Workshop Overview

Every department should have the ability to implement its emergency response plan at a moment’s notice. This practical, two-day workshop helps your company be prepared in the event of a worst-case scenario, gives you the knowledge needed to put together an effective response and provides tips for updating your company’s emergency response plan at least every other year. Participants learn the issues involved in related disasters, which also can readily be applied in events.

First and foremost, preparedness must focus on prevention and mitigation—taking pre-emptive measures to help communities avoid emergencies and become better equipped so that the impact of disasters are reduced. Since some risks cannot be completely mitigated, Country Offices should always remain in a state of readiness to respond to crises.

This course will give you a greater understanding of the emergency response planning process. It is ideal for middle to senior managers or new employees who may, in the course of their normal duties, be called upon to take up a position in their company’s emergency response organization.

All companies, when put under pressure, should have the ability to respond in a manner that is entirely satisfactory in order to maintain their business and their credibility. Incidents cannot be avoided entirely, but can be handled in such a way that their impact is reduced and they do not turn into crises. The correct handling of risk allows a company to stand out from other competitors.
