An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is a written document that elucidates the actions of employees and employers in the event of a workplace emergency. A well developed EAP, when used in conjunction with effective employee training, can help to reduce the likelihood and severity of damage caused during such emergencies.
Emergency notification systems can play a key role in the event of a crisis, where there is no scope for human error. Having an effective emergency response system in place can help reduce the magnitude of damage caused during a crisis to a significant extent. It is important for such a system to be easy to use and manage, and equipped with smart automation features. With industry-leading organizations relying on emergency notification systems to spread messages across to a wide audience, such systems are becoming the need of the hour for businesses the world over.
One of the most unique aspects of Halloween is that we celebrate the darker side of life. We decorate our homes with bats and spiders, dress up like ghosts and goblins, and test our hearts with haunted houses and scary movies. We face our fears and by doing so we take a little bit of the power away from them. Because in the end what we are most afraid of is the unknown. That bump in the night that we hear but can’t see. So in the event of an emergency, don’t leave your employees in the dark.
The odds are that your head of security can’t nail Detroit Rock City on Guitar Hero. And the odds are even greater that your Shopping Center will never experience a terrorist takeover. But it still begs the question, what if Paul Blart had an Crisis Communication Solution? Or even better still, what if Paul Blart was signed up to receive emergency notifications from the Shopping Center where he worked? Perhaps all of the ensuing comedy in the movie could have been avoided. Certainly this would have made movie critics happy!
Yesterday, I bought my first NFC enabled phone. While I’m not sure what all it does at this stage, I do know that my Samsung Galaxy S III phone has an NFC chip. A what? NFC stands for Near Field Communication, it’s an older technology that has finally found a home right inside of that highly coveted marketing device in your pocket (or purse). Ok, so what does that mean?
I am a visual person. In fact, there’s a joke around the office that you can’t fully communicate with me unless you’re using hand signals. (I’ve already given Lee credit for Daniel’s ideas, because Lee explained them to me using hand signals and Daniel did not.) Anyway, I’m visual. I can remember a face forever. If I see you in passing, you will look familiar to me the next time I see you. And, I’m pretty good at remembering where I was when I met someone, if I recall what the room looked like when we met. But, I’m terrible – TERRIBLE – at remembering names!
