DISASTER MITIGATION AND EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS AT THE WORKPLACE

Disaster?-As defined by the United Nations is a sudden, calamitous event bringing great damage, loss and destruction and devastation to life and property. Mitigation-is the effort to reduce loss of life and property by lessening the impact of disasters. In order for mitigation to be effective, we need to take action NOW, before the next disaster as this will help reduce human and financial consequences later. Emergency-Something dangerous or serious, such as an accident, that happens suddenly or unexpectedly and needs fast action in order to avoid harmful results. Disaster and Emergency Management-This is how we deal with the human, material, economic or environmental impact of said Disaster; it is the process of how we prepare for, respond to and learn from the effects of major failures.
