Evacuation Planning and Training


At the time of an emergency, employees should know what type of evacuation is necessary – and what their role is in carrying out the plan. In great emergencies, total and immediate evacuation of all employees is necessary.

Employees must be sure that they know what is expected of them in all emergency possibilities. The use of floor plans or workplace maps which clearly show the emergency escape routes should be included in the emergency action plan. Color coding will aid employees in determining employees’ route assignments. The designation of refuge or safe areas for evacuation should be determined and identified in the plan.

The best way to protect yourself, your workers, and your business property is to expect the unexpected and develop a well-thought-out emergency action plan to guide you when immediate action is necessary. Few people think clearly and logically in a crisis, so it’s important to do so in advance.
