Does Your Business Have Plan for a Fire Emergency
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends all businesses have an emergency action plan to protect yourself, your employees, and your business during an emergency. They also suggest the following steps when developing such a plan.
Organize an Emergency Preparedness Procedures review with your company's emergency plans. Select an individual or team of individuals to lead and coordinate your emergency plan.
Once a plan is developed, post evacuation procedures, including routes and exits, where they are easily accessible to all empoyees. Ensure all exits and routes are clearly marked and well lit, wide enough tot accommodate the number of evacuating personnel, and unobstructed and clear of debris at all times.
Conduct office evacuation exercises and drills. Designate a safe spot outside the facility where employees regroup, recover, and conduct a head count. Once completed, evaluate how well the plan worked and if additional training or exercises are needed.
