Frequently Asked Questions about Emergency Planning
Does OSHA Require Facilities to Maintain an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)?
Per OSHA, 29 CFR 1910.157 requires you to have an EAP if fire extinguishers are required or provided in your workplace and anyone will be evacuating during a fire or other emergency. The only exemption is if you have an in-house fire brigade in which every employee is trained and equipped to fight fires, and consequently, no one evacuates.
Does Your Emergency Action Plan Need to Be Documented?
Per 29 CFR 1910.38, an emergency action plan must be in writing, kept in the workplace, and available to employees for review. However, an employer with 10 or fewer employees may communicate the plan orally to employees.
Do You Have to Train Employees On Your EAP?
Per 29 CFR 1910.38(e), an employer must designate and train employees to assist in a safe and orderly evacuation of other employees.

Does My Workplace Have to Do Evacuation Drills?
