Safety & Preparedness Services
Shared Solutions offers an array of safety training tools to help protect you and your team. But what is safety? Broadly, safety encompasses the events and procedures to protect people from an incident. While the incidents which may occur vary from business to business there are basic things you can do to be prepared.
Answer the following about your work environment:
Do you have an Emergency Action Plan?
Do you know where it is?
How many emergency exits are in the building?
Do you know where they are?
Where is the closest fire extinguisher? Do you know how to use it?
How many flights of stairs do you have to go up/down to get to your workspace?
How many people are working in your office right now?
Where do you go if an emergency alarm sounds?
These are just a few things to consider when faced with an emergency. If you couldn’t answer all the questions, you aren’t as safe as you think. Too often we take our safety for granted and do not plan or practice emergency responses. You need to make the time; Shared Solutions is here to help you fill it.

The frequency of evacuation drills varies depending on the organization, but it is recommended that they be conducted at least twice a year. During the evacuation drill, individuals should follow established procedures, including identifying exits, accounting for all personnel, and moving to a safe location.
