Disaster preparedness and risk management have long been a concern for us all, however, over the years, the emphasis has constantly been placed on individuals and communities. The PSOJ has observed a gap: there is insufficient emphasis on the risk that the private organisations in Jamaica face and our impact that disaster often has on the country.

In an effort to fill the gap the PSOJ has converted the third staging of the President’s Forum for 2018, into a mini-seminar under the theme, "Disaster Risk Management for Business Continuity”. The panelists represent the government disaster agency, the international sector as well as business entities. They will share insights on disaster management in an effort to encourage others to be prepared. The President’s Forum will be held on May 29, 2018, at 7:45 a.m. at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel. President of the Private Sector Organisation of Jamaica (PSOJ), Mr. Howard Mitchell is encouraging business enterprises to support the forum, as very useful information will be shared.

Last year hurricanes swept through the Atlantic, causing unprecedented damage across the Caribbean and scientists studying past and future weather patterns have warned that hurricane conditions could get worse.

The hurricane season of 2017 was estimated at $215 Billion in losses, which were also claimed from the US coast to the Caribbean, making last year’s hurricane season one of the costliest, according to Bloomberg.

The presenter will include: Major Clive Davis, Director General of ODPEM, Mr. Jack Yuja, Chargé-d’Affaires High Commission of Canada, Mr Julian Rojas, Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) Regional Manager, GB Energy, and Major Andre Sterling, Logistics and Customer Service Director at J. Wray and Nephew.
