Emergency Action and Fire Prevention Plans – OSHA requires that emergency action plans address emergencies that the employer may reasonably expect in the workplace. These emergencies include fire, toxic chemical releases, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards, floods, and others.
The safety experts at W F Biggins, Associates can assist in establishing a plan in accordance with OSHA’s standards. When drafting your emergency action plan, our focus is on creating a well-developed plan and ensuring employees have proper training so they understand their roles and responsibility should an emergency occur.
Having an emergency action plan and fire prevention plan in place will help:
- Reduce the possibility of a fire or other emergency
- Reduce the risk of loss of life in an injury or emergency
To begin, we start by surveying your facility to identify fire hazards, emergency systems, emergency equipment, and first aid equipment and supplies. Next, we will assist you in eliminating any hazards found along with selecting any emergency equipment that may be necessary and prudent.
From there, we will help you establish your emergency response procedures and prepare your plant diagrams with exit routes, meeting place(s), and emergency contact information. Once procedures are identified, we will prepare and publish your written prevention plan in accordance with OSHA standards.
Lastly, we train your employees in the hazards and emergency scenarios associated with your facility and your planned response to these emergencies. Training is done by using interactive classroom techniques and training documents.
