Most organization leaders believe their emergency plans are state-of-the-art. When, in fact, their plans are dangerously flawed.
Their emergency plans do not comply with federal and state regulations, ignore many classes of personnel and rarely consider visitors. Additionally, coordination with local emergency services is non-existent, and personnel training is haphazard and illegal. The risks to the organization are many and the exposures titanic.
Sandy Hook, Aurora, CO; and Hurricane Sandy emphasizes that emergency planning for your organization is subject to many federal, state and local laws, regulations and standards. Most who are tasked with creating and maintaining emergency plans are confused or overwhelmed regarding those standards. Learn what laws, regulations and standards apply to your emergency planning, training and exercises.
Risk never sleeps. Emergencies can strike any organization with a direct hit, or can clobber anything within a wide path. In recent past, organizations were vulnerable to these reported emergencies:
- 4.1 million workplace injuries;
- 2 million incidents of workplace violence; two people are murdered every day in the workplace;
- $2.6 billion in property loss from non-residential structure fires
- 349,500 fire department responses to hazardous material spills
- 45,000 natural and manmade disasters
- 111,500 structural fires in commercial buildings;
- 3.8 million concussions per year reported to emergency rooms;
- 10,000 incidents of sudden cardiac arrest at work
- 4,690 accidental workplace deaths

Risk always multiplies. What is the fallout for an unprepared organization?
- 78% of organizations that suffer a catastrophe without a contingency plan go out of operation within 2 years.
- 90% of organizations unable to resume operations within 5 days of a disaster go out of business within one year.
