The Erasmus+ Prodigy project is developing a Strategic Planning Emergency Preparedness Framework and Tool Box to help SMEs improve their workplace emergency preparedness, especially for people with disabilities. The project aims to provide a comprehensive and practical guide for SMEs to assess their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, identify their goals and priorities, design and implement action plans, and monitor their progress and results.
The project team has been working hard to create the Framework and Tool Box, which will include a series of steps, tools, templates, methods, bibliography and charts to support SMEs in their emergency planning process. The Framework and Tool Box will cover topics such as SWOT analysis, stakeholder engagement, mission, vision and values, budgeting, execution and evaluation.
The project is now entering its final phase, where the Framework and Tool Box will be pilot tested in five SMEs to evaluate their effectiveness, efficiency, practicability and comprehensibility. The pilot testing will start soon and the results will be reported in a Pilot Study Report. The feedback from the pilot testing will help the project team to fine tune the Framework and Tool Box if needed.
The project expects to complete the Framework and Tool Box by the end of this year and upload them on the project’s website for public access. The project hopes that the Framework and Tool Box will be useful for SMEs who want to enhance their workplace emergency preparedness and inclusion of people with disabilities. The project also invites SMEs who are interested in the topic to contact the project team for more information and collaboration.
