Emergency Action Plan
Emergency Action Plan
An emergency action plan is a set of procedures and protocols developed by an employer to ensure the safety and well-being of employees in the event of an emergency, such as a fire, natural disaster, or other unexpected situation. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires employers to have an emergency action plan in place to protect employees from such emergencies.
Employers who fail to comply with OSHA regulations may be subject to hefty fines and penalties.
By having an emergency action plan in place, you can help to ensure the safety and well-being of your employees during an emergency and comply with OSHA regulations.
