An emergency action plan (EAP) is a written document required by particular OSHA standards. The purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies. Well-developed emergency plans 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 the facility during emergencies.
It’s important that we regularly train EAP’s and that you know and understand emergency procedures. Please watch the videos and complete the training and quiz attached to this month’s Safety Topic. Thanks for continuing to improve our Safety Culture!
