Earthquake workplace preparedness

Dan Belanger

Earthquake & Tsunami Program Manager/EMS II

This program is pre-approved for 2 SHRM PDC & HRCI General Credits

Unlike other natural hazards, earthquakes strike suddenly and without warning. The November 30, 2018 gave us all a big wake-up call in regards to workplace preparedness. This workshop will address the steps that can be taken to reduce the chances that those who work in or visit the premises will be injured, that property there will be damaged, or that your day-to-day operations will be unduly disrupted by an earthquake. These activities all fall under the concept of preparedness, because to be effective, they must be done before earthquakes occur.

Preparing for earthquakes involves (1) learning what employers and employees should do before, during, and after earthquakes; and (2) doing or preparing to do those things now, before the next quake; (3) leadership and employee engagement.

Dan Belanger is the Earthquake & Tsunami Program Manager for Alaska Division of Homeland Security & Alaska Division of Homeland Security & Emergency Management and a member of the National Earthquake Hazard Reduction Program. He coordinates research grants, mapping projects and outreach products with UAF and DGGS under the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program. Dan works with NOAA Tsunami Education Programs, National Disaster Preparedness Training Center and emergency managers in creating community resilience for all hazards but focuses on Earthquake and Tsunami preparedness. Dan is a lifelong Alaskan and US Army Veteran where he served as a UH 60 helicopter mechanic/crew chief. He also holds an FAA A&P certificate. He earned his Bachelors of Science from Alaska Pacific University in Science and Education and taught geology and physical science in Alaska for 10 years.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the SHRM Foundation!!
