The public sector believes that private sector employers are well prepared for emergencies and have an emergency team ready to help the public emergency agencies to respond to emergencies at their facility and save the day. This is especially since 9/11.
The private sector believes that public sector agencies will arrive in less than four minutes, will take command of the facility for emergency response at their facility without requiring assistance from the private sector employer. They believe the public sector has all the latest equipment and a surfeit of manpower to handle emergencies affectively. This is especially since 9/11. Wrong on both counts!
The public and private sectors live with these myths about each other’s readiness. The research on the lack of readiness in the private sector is broad and deep. Emergency preparedness in the private sector is limited to basic preparedness only. On the other hand, public emergency service agencies have budget and equipment constraints, and have limited manpower and training.
This dangerous disconnect portends more injuries, less resiliency and longer return to operations in the private sector. This audio session by expert speaker Bo Mitchell will explore the facts of readiness in both public and private sector, dispel the myths each has of the other, and offer recommendations on how to fix the problem of workplace emergency preparedness and response in both the sectors.
