Learn How to Prepare for the Ebola Threat

Companies may be misled into thinking that they are unlikely to be impacted by the current Ebola threat. However, this webinar will reveal why companies need to pay attention to this threat, and what precautions they need to take today in order to safeguard their business from potential losses if the threat proliferates. Surprisingly, there are precautionary measures that companies can take immediately, even if the threat seems remote. By implementing these measures early on, companies can develop safeguards to minimize potential business, human or legal losses.

This program by Matthew Liotine, Ph.D. will show how to prepare your company for the threat, identifying the bases your company needs to cover today in light of the recent Ebola events. The program will reverse the misconception that because the threat is so unlikely, there is no need for your company to worry about it at this time. Matthew will outline the fundamental components of a response plan that companies can use to immediately get started to address the potential Ebola threat. He will also provide a checklist of areas that should be addressed for preparation.

Session Highlights:

  • How to go about developing preparedness and response plan to address the outbreak
  • What functional areas within a company need to be involved in the preparation, and
  • What are the critical issues that you need to think about at this time in order to successfully react to any potentially related incident

This program will provide answers to such questions as:

  • Why do we need to plan for Ebola
  • What kind of preparedness is appropriate at this stage of the virus
  • How can it impact my business operations
  • Who needs to be involved in the planning, internally and externally
  • When should a response plan be activated
  • Can my company in anyway be held accountable for not planning
  • How do I create a response plan

Who should attend:

People engaged in Human Resources (HR), Administration, Legal Affairs, Business Continuity/Resilience, Operations Management, Security, Health/Medical or Public Relations in any company within any industry.
