A new Staples.com feature, the Safety Research Center, offers guides to help them prepare for common safety issue and emergencies.

Staples recently conducted a survey of 412 small-business managers and office workers that showed nearly half of the office workers either aren't sure their work site has an emergency plan or in fact does not have one.

"Staples is joining forces with the National Safety Council to promote preparedness for any type of emergency, disaster, or accident. It's crucial for small businesses to have everything from a plan in place to the right safety supplies on hand, to ensure the health and well-being of their most valuable resource, their employees," said Bob Risk, senior strategic safety, health and wellness manager for Staples.

Staples has operations in 26 countries and employs 88,000 people worldwide. Its headquarters at outside Boston. Besides office products, the company sells dust masks, eyewash, defibrillators, and caution signs to help employers maintain robust safety programs.
