Why Emergency Preparedness Training is Vital

Every organisation has a legal responsibility to prepare for potential emergencies that may occur during their operations. Emergency preparation must be adequate for the level of risk that an emergency may cause. Preparedness must include having appropriate equipment, first aiders and other emergency staff and ensuring everybody knows and understand their role.

A failure to have proper emergency response measures in place can result in fines and irreparable damage to an organisation’s reputation, as well as significant injury and the loss of life.
