A workplace emergency is a situation that threatens employees, customers or the public; disrupts or shuts down operations posing a huge financial burden on businesses through loss of life, production, services, and reputation. Additionally, fines, penalties and increased insurance premises can have a drastic impact on businesses without an emergency plan or crisis management systems.
Emergencies may be natural or man-made and may include fire and explosions involving nuclear or radiological sources, floods, winter weather, chemical spills or releases, disease outbreaks, releases of biological agents, and many other hazards. Many types of emergencies can be anticipated in the planning process, which can help employers and workers plan for other unpredictable situations.
