While 88 percent of smaller businesses agree that it makes sense to have a business-continuity plan, only 39 percent actually have one, according to a new Ad Council survey.

Here are three resources to help plan for a workplace emergency and educate your employees:

  • OSHA's 20-page booklet, How to Plan for Workplace Emergencies and Evacuation. Go to www.osha.gov/Publications/osha3088.pdf.
  • The U.S. Department of Homeland Security offers free workplace posters on physical security and computer security. Go to www.us-cert.gov/reading_room/distributable.html.
  • A government Web site, www.ready.gov, offers downloadable posters, brochures and checklists that help individuals and businesses prepare.
