Emergency Action Plans


An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) covers designated actions employers and employees must take to ensure employee safety from emergencies. An EAP is required by particular OSHA standards and must generally be in writing, kept in the workplace, and available to employees for review. An employer with 10 or fewer employees may communicate the plan orally to employees. 

Well-developed EAPs and proper employee training (such that employees understand their roles and responsibilities within the plan) will result in fewer and less severe employee injuries and less structural damage to your workplace during emergencies. A poorly prepared plan may lead to a disorganized evacuation or emergency response, resulting in confusion, injury, and property damage.
