Summer is just around the corner and so, unfortunately, is Hurricane Season. The season, which typically runs from June 1 – November 30, can wreak devastation that annually averages over $1.8 billion . Unlike tornadoes, which may only provide a few minutes’ warning, hurricanes can often be seen coming days or even weeks in advance. That “early warning system” can spell the difference between devastation and weathering the storm. Following the adage that “forewarned is forearmed,” here are seven safety tips you can do right now to prepare for the season ahead.
If you do nothing else, make a plan. Talk to your employees about your expectations and how their safety is your number one priority. Showing you care is bound to pay off – even if you never have to put your plan into action.
