Emergency preparedness: Creating a compliant contingency plan

Every business has the responsibility to prevent and respond to workplace accidents. While companies strive to create compliant emergency preparedness plans, unforeseen regulatory changes can bring them down with damaging blind spots.

What is emergency preparedness and how to develop a contingency plan?
