Is Your Business Ready for an Emergency?
Most of us have a home emergency plan for our families. When was the last time you actively thought about how to respond to an emergency at work?
During an emergency, you may find it difficult to think quickly and remember all the things you need to do. Although emergencies do not happen often, planning for them is one of those crucial 'just in case' precautions, like having smoke detectors.
Knowing what to do when an emergency occurs in the workplace may make the difference when the seconds count. Create an Emergency Action Plan that covers topics such as emergency communications, and evacuation, emergency and reporting procedures. Get help with an action plan at sdge.com/plan.
Save on Energy Costs in the Office
There are many ways to save electricity in an office, and most can be made with small changes to employee behavior. Often, simply letting your staff know that you intend to be more conscious of energy costs and ways to save is enough to make them aware and conscientious about it, too!
In case you're not sure where to begin, below are some effective business energy-saving tips to help jumpstart your cost savings. The main thing is to avoid using energy when it’s not absolutely needed.

Scripps Health Launches Year-Round Drug Take-Back Kiosks
Free service offers safe, convenient way to dispose of prescription medications
SAN DIEGO – Scripps Health has opened three drug take-back kiosks adjacent to its on-site pharmacies, becoming the first health care organization in the region to offer year-round access to a free service for disposing of unused, unneeded and outdated prescription medications.
Patients can now drop off their unneeded pills, capsules, tablets and caplets at secure kiosks conveniently located at Scripps Mercy Ambulatory Pharmacy, 4060 Fourth Ave., Suite 110; Green Ambulatory Pharmacy at Scripps Clinic Torrey Pines, 10710 N. Torrey Pines Road in La Jolla; and Encinitas Ambulatory Pharmacy at Scripps Clinic Encinitas, 310 Santa Fe Drive, Suite 109, between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. each election day
If you are scheduled to be at work during that time and you do not have sufficient time outside of working hours to vote at a statewide election, California law allows you to take up to two hours off to vote, without losing any pay.
You may take as much time as you need to vote, but only two hours of that time will be paid.
Your time off for voting can be only at the beginning or end of your regular work shift, whichever allows the most free time for voting and the least time off from your regular working shift, unless you make another arrangement with your employer.
If three working days before the election you think you will need time off to vote, you must notify your employer at least two working days prior to the election.
NOTICE TO EMPLOYERS REGARDING EMPLOYEE TIME OFF FOR VOTING
State law (California Elections Code section 14001) requires employers to post a notice to their employees advising them of provisions for taking paid leave for the purpose of voting in statewide elections.
A sample of this notice has been printed on the opposite side of this page for your convenience.
This notice must be posted conspicuously at the place of work, if practicable, or else-where where it can be seen as employees come and go to their place of work, not less than 10 days before every statewide election.
If you have any questions about this notice or other election related information, please contact the Secretary of State’s Voter Hotline at (800) 345-VOTE (8683).
