Prioritizing Employee Safety: Modern Solutions for Emergency Preparedness in the Workplace
Employees are the most valuable asset in a company. As such, it is important for companies to have contingency procedures in place to handle emergencies when they do occur. One such emergency recently took place in a foundry in Ohio, in which one employee tragically lost their life, and several others were severely injured. Families of workers were left waiting to find out about the safety of their loved ones, not knowing who to contact. How can companies be sure that they are prepared for when these life or death situations do occur? Will that annual haphazardly executed fire drill be enough to keep everyone safe and accounted for? Will emergency personnel know who to look for when they arrive on scene or will they only have a half filled in paper form with employees names scratched illegibly down a column?
One action that companies can take to increase the likelihood of emergency procedures going as planned is utilizing modern mustering software like that offered by Savance. Employees can be tracked in real time, monitoring time and attendance. And if an emergency does occur, this real time data enables the company to know who to look for, who is accounted for and who is missing. Modern companies demand modern solutions, rather than old magnetic in/ out boards that don’t track people in real time, or paper sign in/sign out sheets that can easily get lost, stolen or damaged. This is not only a matter of reputation of the company but also a question of safety for a company’s employees and visitors. If you are looking for modern software solutions to keep your business running smoothly and your employees efficient and safe, look to Savance!
