    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.
