Workplace Emergency Procedures
Complete a risk assessment
According to Ready.gov, “A risk assessment is a process to identify potential hazards and analyze what could happen if a hazard occurs.”
Business impact analysis
According to Ready.gov, “A business impact analysis predicts the consequences of disruption of a business function and process and gathers information needed to develop recovery strategies. Potential loss scenarios should be identified during a risk assessment. Operations may also be interrupted by the failure of a supplier of goods or services or delayed deliveries. There are many possible scenarios which should be considered.”
Train employees in CPR
Next, we get to the nitty-gritty of what should be done during an emergency. As Ready.gov advises, “At the very least, every facility should develop and implement an emergency plan for protecting employees, visitors, contractors and anyone else in the facility.

The infrastructure and many moving and non-moving parts within a manufacturing facility are vulnerable to damage or failure. A door or wall can take one too many hits from a forklift. A conveyor belt can suddenly go off track. A broken door or wall tear down can be more than just an inconvenience. For some manufacturers, this can be a detriment to their entire business if they are handling products that must be kept within a specific temperature range. An out-of-service production line can stop operations entirely and jeopardize a manufacturer’s production deadline unless they can get a swift repair. These are just examples of the many emergencies can happen inside a manufacturing facility. Storee has the capability and experience to provide prompt reactive solutions in emergencies to get a manufacturer’s production operations back online.
