Agenda for Emergency Planning Workshop

  • Pandemic planning It’s not just COVID-19! Learn how to set up a plan for dealing with the current pandemic and others sure to come down the line.
  • Vaccinations. Why flu shots and other immunizations should be on your emergency planning list - including in 2020 as we approach seasonal influenza time. Learn exactly what you can and cannot do to require/encourage vaccination.
  • Post-emergency considerations. Learn how to safely deal with the aftermath of shutdowns too. Otherwise, you risk hazards like contaminated water supplies, Legionnaires Disease and toxic mold.
  • Natural disasters. Find out how to prepare for other emergencies - wildfires, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and storms.
  • Telework. Learn why telework has to be part of your emergency planning and how to make it work, including sample essential telework policies.
  • Workplace violence. Are you prepared for workplace violence? Whether civil disturbances or angry ex-workers, every manager needs a plan for sheltering in place, treating victims and preventing violence in the first place.
