About This Course:
Learn how to develop emergency preparedness and evacuation plans to keep employees safe and prepare to get your business back up-and-running.

OSHA reports that nearly every business must have an emergency action plan (EAP) in place to ensure its employees can safely exit the facility in the event of an emergency. A comprehensive and successful EAP should also focus on operations recovery to ensure business continuity, which includes equipment water damage, losses of utility services, continuation of raw material delivery, and alternative manufacturing plans.

When developing an EAP, there are other important regulatory requirements that you need to consider and incorporate to ensure that your EAP is compliant. For example, there are specific training and documentation requirements you must meet to prove your EAP is up to speed with OSHA compliance when investigators come around.
