There is always the potential for emergencies to occur at your facility. To reduce your exposure to potential emergencies, your employer has developed an emergency action plan. Emergency actions plans are developed to provide guidelines on what actions to take if an emergency should occur at your facility.
1. Evacuation procedures and exit route assignments. Your employer will also point out the location of internal shelter areas, and exterior safe areas for evacuation. 2. Procedures to be followed by employees who remain to operate critical plant operations before they evacuate. Some critical plant operations include gas, electrical, power, and water. Chemical manufacturing processes could also be included. 3. Headcount procedures to account for you and your co-workers after emergency evacuation has been completed. 4. Rescue and medical duties for those employees who are to perform them. 5. Procedures for reporting fires and other emergencies. 6. Names or regular job titles of persons or departments who can be contacted for further information or an explanation of duties under the plan.
