Fire Evacuations

To ensure employee safety before, during, and after an evacuation due to a fire, employers should possess the ability to alert employees of the need to evacuate, and train employees on basic fire evacuation principles.

Alarm & Alarm Activation

To ensure that employees can evacuate safely in the event of a fire, employers should install and maintain an operable employee alarm system. The alarm system should have a distinctive signal to warn employees of fire or other emergencies, unless employees can promptly see or smell a fire or other hazard in time to provide adequate warning to them.

Fire alarms should:

  • Be distinctive and recognizable as a signal to evacuate the work area or to perform actions designated under an Emergency Action Plan; and
  • Be capable of being heard, seen, or otherwise perceived by everyone in the workplace
