We are only a few weeks into the new year, and workplace safety has already become a major point of conversation in 2019. At Rave, we have noticed a recent interest increase in our corporate safety related content, and these topics show no signs of slowing down. We predict that emergency preparedness will continue to grow in relevancy for business organizations as 2019 continues.
Critical communications for businesses have become much more in depth over the past few years. Implementing and maintaining corporate emergency plans involve many moving pieces to consider, including technology and communications trends.
