Does your organization need an Emergency Action Plan? The simple answer is "Yes!". The days of taking workplace and worker safety for granted are gone. Unfortunately there are too many recent examples of Critical Incidents in the workplace to allow us to assume it could never happen to us. Your organization may never have to contend with a Critical Incident, but it might.
AEM Risk & Security Consulting Ltd. will work with you to cost effectively help protect your employees from these risks while also reducing your legal and civil exposure.
