Do you know exactly what to do in the event of an emergency at your greenhouse?

An emergency management plan is designed to identify, evaluate, and address any significant risks to the business and those that work there. Having a plan in place can help mitigate the negative effects of the incident by safeguarding human life and minimizing losses to the business. Emergency preparedness is one of the cornerstones of resilient companies and helps keep a bad situation from turning into a disaster.
