Bob Risk, Staples National Safety Expert
Yes, his last name is Risk, and September is National Emergency Preparedness Month.
According to a national workplace safety survey by Staples, only half of employees believe their workplaces are prepared for a severe emergency and nearly two-thirds of those polled said recent natural disasters have not led to their employers reassessing company safety plans.
Today, Staples’ Safety Expert Bob Risk drops in to discuss how local San Diego consumers and businesses can get back-to-safety and prepare for the unexpected.
Bob says people would be surprised to find out how many stores and even restaurants lack the most basic supplies for first aid!
And he’s going to share with us 5 overlooked products that should be included as part of an emergency preparedness kit.
Bob is the senior strategic safety health and wellness manager for Staples. His experience includes working with some of the largest corporations in the world to help them with emergency response efforts and environmental clean-ups of some of the worst disasters in the last decade, including Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Coast Oil spill.
