The climate crisis has the potential to threaten worker health and safety, with implications for staffing plans, project timelines, and business continuity. Sources say that extreme heat in 2019 led to the loss of 2 billion potential hours of U.S. labor, according to Lancet Countdown. Proactive, high-performing employers are empowering employees to join in efforts to reduce environmental impact while also preparing for the possibility of increased frequency of natural disasters in the coming decades.
In this meeting, we will discuss actions employers are taking today to prepare for climate change and natural disasters that have the potential to impact worker health, safety, and well-being.
Guiding questions include:
- Has climate change motivated revision of your organization’s approach to crisis management? For what sort of crises is your organization preparing (i.e. natural disaster, etc.)?
- What principles are you using to guide your response to crisis management?
- How can basic levels of readiness/preparedness become embedded in daily work activities?
- How can we help people feel a sense of agency and resilience in the face of climate change?
