Protect your people

  • Step 1: Plan

    Having an emergency preparedness program in place before a crisis occurs can go a long way toward minimizing the disruptive impact of such an event.

  • Step 2: Prepare

    When the worst happens, demand on critical services and supplies intensifies dramatically, often creating shortages. Advance preparation is essential to maintain continuity of service and operations in any crisis situation.

  • Step 3: Reinforce

    Education, such as respiratory user training and fit testing requirements, is essential to develop awareness and understanding of how to respond and react in a crisis.

  • Step 4: Stay updated

    For specific guidance on personal protective equipment use during exposure to a contagious biohazard, check with your local authorities and/or public health agencies.
