The main objective of this training session is to help you communicate effectively with employees about workplace emergencies. By the time the session is over, you should be able to communicate effectively before an emergency; communicate effectively during an emergency; and communicate effectively after an emergency. The first part of the session will address communication before emergencies to prepare employees to respond effectively in an actual emergency. The second part will cover communication during and after an emergency.
Why “Communicating Effectively in Emergencies” Matters:
Effective communication can minimize the impact of emergencies and help reduce the number of injuries and fatalities. A calm and decisive leader giving clear instructions during an emergency can help keep your people safe. When your employees act swiftly and properly in response to an emergency, they help protect property and minimize damage and destruction in the workplace.
• Effective communication is vital to help protect employees and the workplace in an emergency.
• Communicating critical information in a crisis is an important part of your duties as a supervisor.
