We conducted a study of 578 full-time employees from various industries across the U.S. for Rave Mobile Safety’s annual “Workplace Safety and Preparedness Survey”. We conducted this survey in September 2022, and a notable discovery was that one third of companies have never conducted drills or tested emergency plans for severe weather-related events. This lack of preparedness is important as extreme weather events like hurricane Ian can have devastating effects on employees personal and professional lives. Another area where training is lacking is in the event of active assailants in the workplace, which 34% of respondents were concerned about. But 43% of employees said that their employer has never performed drills or tested emergency plans for these types of situations.
