629 Assessing and Managing Risk of Natural Disasters for a Workplace

Summary: Natural disasters happen, sometimes with advance knowledge, but often without warning. Regardless, the continuity of business operations, the protection of property, and the minimization of personnel injuries and trauma require advanced planning. “Information rather than fear, early warning rather than surprise” is the United Nations’ concept to initiate a planning process for protecting local communities on a global level from natural disasters, where the physical and social structures are self-sustained after the termination of the event. As a result, the next storm or the next flood do not become disasters, but remain as they should be─ manageable natural events.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
