Does your employer have a plan for severe weather in Michigan?
The Michigan Committee for Severe Weather Awareness (MCSWA) has designated April 10-16, 2016 as Severe Weather Awareness Week.
MCSWA reminds everyone that severe weather was responsible for 7 injures during 2015. It also caused $130 million in damages across Michigan.
Is severe weather considered a threat in your workplace? We recommend downloading the awareness toolkit.
Just having a weather radio and fresh batteries can save employee lives. Make sure employees know when to stop work and take shelter. Have a disaster plan so that employees know when to stay home. Company profits should never come before employee safety!
Weather.com says a severe thunderstorm or tornado watch means that atmospheric conditions are favorable for development. Keep an eye towards the sky. A severe thunderstorm or tornado warning means that potentially dangerous weather is occurring or about to occur. Take action!
