How safe do U.S. employees really feel?

Are your employees prepared for an emergency at work?

Are your employees prepared for an emergency at work?

How safe do your employees really feel at work? According to a recent survey conducted by CareerBuilder, many feel safe enough, but doubt their ability to respond to a real emergency should one occur.

The survey found that:

  • 94 percent of workers believe their office is a secure place to work.
  • Almost a quarter of employees said they would not know what to do to protect themselves if there was an emergency in their office, such as a physical threat.
  • 30 percent believe their workspace is not well-protected from a physical threat from another person.
  • 30 percent feel their workspace is not well-protected from a digital threat.
  • 21 percent of workers believe their company does not have an emergency plan in place for a natural disaster, and 40 percent don't believe their company has a plan for a physical threat by another person or technology breach.

"Keeping employees protected means not only putting measures in place to keep them safe, but making sure employees are aware of the policies and procedures they can protect themselves too," said chief human resources officer of CareerBuilder Rosemary Haefner.

Employee safety begins with training initiatives and refresher courses. Safety is more than just a plan. It must include government health and safety requirements, state-specific requirements and OSHA enforced guidelines. As each small business must be ready to handle a range of customers, ventures and changes, they must also be equipped to handle a range of safety issues or emergencies as well.
