Earthquake Preparedness at Work or at Home

Unlike hurricanes and some other natural hazards, earthquakes strike suddenly and without warning. When you live in an area at risk for earthquakes, there are things that you can do for earthquake preparedness to reduce the chances that you or other members of your workplace or household will be injured, or that your property will be damaged.

For earthquake preparedness to be effective, it must be done before an earthquake occurs.

Earthquake Preparedness Training: Preparing for earthquakes involves learning what people should do before, during, and after earthquakes, and training to do those things now, before the next quake.

As part of our client-consultant relationship, BCQuake conducts workplace safety training with real world experience. Loved ones and employees develop a true understanding of the chaos of a major quake, and learn how to properly secure spaces at home, and in the workplace.

The main objective of our Earthquake Preparedness Training session is to encourage you to think about earthquake hazards and what you need to do to prepare for and survive earthquakes. After completion of the session, you will be able to:

  • identify earthquake hazards
  • prepare for quakes at home and at work
  • know what to do during a quake to help ensure safety
  • provide assistance to those in need following an earthquake
  • and take effective steps after a quake to speed recovery.

Safety Training in the workplace

The impact of earthquakes on B.C. workplaces could be severe in terms of life, property and economic losses. Business owners, managers, supervisors, and employees all must be aware of not only the physical and emotional impact an earthquake could have on their lives, but also of the economic impact of lost productivity in the workplace.

Preparedness empowers employees with the know-how, protocol and emotional survival skills that they may be faced with during the chaos of a disaster.

If you are a business owner, your employees are your most important asset and must be protected.

The objectives of earthquake planning are:

  • To minimize potential for injury/death of employees and customers
  • To evaluate and reduce hazards
  • To reduce expenses caused by loss and liability
  • To put tested procedures and equipment in place
  • To plan for business as usual following an earthquake
