Drafting An Emergency Action Plan: How To Ensure Worksite Compliance With OSHA's EAP Standards
Nearly every organization must have an emergency action plan (EAP) in place to get employees out of harm’s way as quickly as possible in a disaster. The EAP may be simple and straightforward as in the case of a small office with no manufacturing, or it could be quite complex—for instance, in the case of a company with an extensive and large manufacturing operation.
In the event of an emergency or disaster, such as a fire, earthquake, workplace violence incident, or chemical release, it’s critical to make sure employees can safely exit the facility as quickly as possible. That means having a well-thought-out exit strategy that employees have been trained on. In addition, there are other important regulatory requirements to consider, such as EAP training, documentation like a written policy, and procedures for quickly reporting emergencies.
Developing a comprehensive emergency action plan can help you meet both of these requirements. To learn how, join us for our webinar, Drafting an Emergency Action Plan: How to Ensure Worksite Compliance with OSHA’s EAP Standards. Our presenter, a seasoned safety lawyer familiar with OSHA’s requirements for emergency planning, has helped many companies develop and implement EAPs—and can help you do it, too.
Don’t wait for your employees to be injured during an emergency before you develop or review your EAP. Learn drafting tips to ensure it complies with OSHA standards and does the job it’s designed to do—protect employees during an emergency to minimize the risk of injury or death.
