As humans, it is common for us to get set in our ways. Change is never perceived as easy, and as Stan Goldberg said in Psychology Today, “being is easier than becoming”. But in the overlap of technology advancements with organizational safety initiatives, the obligation to move forward to provide better ways to save lives and keep our people informed during an emergency is alive and well. Although we can be resistant at times, we must make continuous changes to stay with the times and improve.
We must look for ways to better prepare before emergencies occur, improve response during an emergency, and practice continuous analysis for improvements after an emergency. Leveraging your existing tools, like your emergency notification system, to automate your actions will remove human error and increase effectiveness before, during, and after an emergency.
