Emergency planning

Be emergency specific.

When developing an evacuation plan for your facility, identify how employees are to respond to a specific emergency. For example, instructions for a shelter-in-place emergency differ from those for an evacuation due to a fire. Conduct evacuation drills to familiarize employees with emergency procedures, exit routes and assembly locations.

Preparing in advance is critical to the safety of employees. When an emergency happens, they’ll know what to do.

And that’s smart safety!
