Fire Safety/Evacuation Plan Review Items
This is a draft cheat sheet. It is a work in progress and is not finished yet.
Drafting an emergency action plan (EAP) is not enough to ensure the safety of your employees. When an evacuation is necessary, you will need responsible, trained individuals who can supervise and coordinate activities to ensure a safe and successful evacuation. An EAP will be useful only if its content is up to date and employees are sufficiently educated and trained before an actual evacuation. The following check points will help you successfully develop and implement your plan:
