Employee Emergency Skills Survey


A workplace can be at risk of a wide variety of emergencies, including natural disasters, human-caused events, and technological and biological hazards. As part of your efforts to prepare for such emergencies, it’s good to know of any special skills and/or experience that employees have that may be useful in a crisis, such as first aid training, experience on a search and rescue team or the ability to speak several languages.


Give this survey to all employees to determine which ones have skills that may be useful in an emergency. Once you’ve identified these individuals, consider their relevant skills in your emergency preparedness and response planning, such as using it to assign employees to roles based on their skills and qualifications. But first make sure that these individuals are willing and able to use these skills in a crisis.
