No one ever expects a workplace emergency but you can decrease it's severity with a solid action plan. In most cases, we only address accidents when we are knee deep into the emergency. Why? Because it is out of sight, out of mind.

Plan Ahead
Do you remember school fire drills as a child? While these may have been tedious they would come in handy if a fire had occurred. Similarly, your workplace should have a plan in case of an emergency, minor or monumental. A suitable arrangement made beforehand helps to relieve stress when crisis strikes.

Recently, a safety railing had been destroyed by a trailer. Our client's immediate action plan was to call Wilcox DoorTwo of our licensed technicians repaired the railing to prevent any future injury that would cause the victim pain as well as costly insurance claims for their workplace. We realized that we had to act quickly and fabricate the railing ourselves in order to fix the issue as soon as possible.
