SEISMIC FASTENING PROGRAM - EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS The heart wrenching story from Japan just keeps getting worse and as you know, it all started with a massive M9.0 earthquake. That big one has made a lot of businesses in the United States think a lot harder about a seismic fastening program on their campus. If you run a business in a seismically active zone, preparedness, and more particularly a seismic fastening program, is key to ensuring that your business keeps on running after an earthquake strikes. A seismic fastening program should be at or near the top of your list of priorities. And it doesn’t matter if your business is large or small, neglecting the earthquake threat and the associated need for a seismic fastening program could prove to be very costly in many ways. What we have seen in Japan is stark evidence of exactly why it’s so important to take Step #1 to earthquake safety and identify all the potential hazards around the workplace and then fix them with a seismic fastening program. The Japanese video footage clearly shows the taller, heavier items toppling onto areas right where people had been sitting and working just moments before the big quake struck. If that didn’t get home the message about why it’s in your best interests to undertake a seismic fastening program around your office, laboratory or warehouse then apparently you need a ton of convincing.
