Emergency action plans

There has to be a plan.

Each facility with 10 or more employees must develop an emergency action plan that includes:

  • Emergency escape routes.
  • Procedures for emergency evacuation team members who contact fire and EMS and remain in the building to assist with the evacuation.
  • Procedures to account for all employees after evacuation.
  • A means of reporting a fire or other emergencies.
  • Names and titles of individuals who can be contacted for further information.
  • Types of evacuation to be used.
  • Employee training.
  • Review the plan carefully with your employees and post it.

And that’s smart safety!
