LOCATIONS: Founders Union 218C for meeting, and 201 for buffet
Workplace Safety, Disaster Planning, and Recovery Presentation
In every place in society, we need to have a watchful eye and carry out workplace safety. Employees should be knowledgeable, and processes and practices should be a part of all job functions. If a disaster occurs, we must have processes and procedures that are carried out during a disaster and recovery phase. In my presentation, the learning objectives are:
- Learn what the law says about safety in the workplace and the different types of unsafe work practices.
- Learn about best workplace practices and how to implement processes and procedures.
- Learn how to plan, be prepared, and how to execute steps in disaster and recovery in the workplace.
