Emergency PLANNING

Following OSHA standards, organizations use emergency action plans to thoroughly outline what to do in case of workplace emergencies. Well-developed emergency action plans reduce employee injuries, lessen property damage, and ensure the safety of visitors. Your plan needs step by step procedures for emergencies (such as chemical spills, fire, tornadoes, or major accidents) and requirements for training.
