Illinois Earthquake

Northern Illinois had an earthquake this morning.  Yes, an earthquake.  While I’m not suggesting Chicagoland businesses run out and produce videos on earthquake preparedness, it did get me thinking.

Many companies show an orientation video to new employees.  It usually contains all sorts of information about the business, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen one that includes what to do in case of an emergency.  Who’s in charge?  Are their exit plans?  Is it every man, woman and child for themselves!?

Just some food for thought.  It might be something worth considering next time you update that video or start from scratch.
