OSHA standards 29 CFR 1910.38(a) requires that most businesses have an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) in place in the event that an evacuation becomes necessary at your worksite, office, factory, or other business space. Ensuring that your company’s EAP is well developed can be the difference between an organized or chaotic and dangerous evacuation.
It is important that both the employer and the employee have all the information necessary to make the best decision during an emergency evacuation. Therefore, employers must not only have a comprehensive plan in place, but must also identify supervisors who can coordinator evacuation activities and schedule training so that all employees are aware of company/site plans.
This training reviews the minimum requirements of an EAP as outlined by OSHA, in addition to providing guidance on drafting, implementing and updating EAP elements for your sites and your employees.
