Are You Prepared for Disaster?

Join Gail Moratan as she shares how important it is for employers to have emergency preparedness planning because it can make the difference between staying in business and losing everything. 

An estimated 25 percent of businesses don’t open again after a major disaster, according to the Institute for Business and Home Safety. A disaster response plan is as important to your employer as a business plan. 

Businesses and their employees face a variety of hazards, including: 
• Natural hazards like floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes. 
• Health hazards such as widespread and serious illnesses like the flu. 
• Human-caused hazards including accidents and acts of violence. 
• Technology-related hazards like hacking, power outages and equipment failure. 

As an EHSQ leader, you can help your organization prepare for the most likely hazards and our speakers will offer expert advice on best practices to prepare for an emergency at your facility. 

Gail Moraton is Business Resiliency Manager for the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS). Moraton joined IBHS in 2011 as the business resiliency manager. She is responsible for the Open for Business® program, a business continuity and property protection planning tool for small- to mid-sized businesses for IBHS member company employees, agents and policyholders.
