Briefing Note: Disaster Management

Dear Members, 

As the 2018 Hurricane season continues to present us with some eye-opening systems, we at the BEC wanted to share with you this briefing note on Disaster Preparedness. We seek to identify considerations and make recommendations to employers in the event of a disaster; specifically referencing weather systems currently. 

In addition to our briefing note you will find a document titled Policy Framework and Standard Operating Procedures for Systematic National Shutdown and Reactivation of Barbados, prepared by the Disaster Emergency Management agency which seeks to address areas such as how shutdowns should occur, what are considered essential services within the private and public sectors and further details.

Thank you
