We make plans, policies and procedures to handle our business activities and especially those regarding emergency situations. We hope they are comprehensive and cover all aspects of a given situation to ensure personnel safety and protection of property with appropriate and timely responses. One method to test the effectiveness of your planning is with tabletop exercises. They provide you with an opportunity to review your plans, discover problem areas and allow you to test the effectiveness of what you have in place.
In this meeting, you will work with others at your table to decide what course of action you would take in various scenarios presented to you. Several scenarios will be presented, and you will discuss with others at your table, what action should be taken using your experience and reflecting on policies and procedures you may have in your organization. You may want to bring others from your organization to this luncheon so you can analyze situations together and learn how tabletop exercises can be an effective tool for you.
