Earthquake Preparedness Poster
Includes critical emergency instructions about what to do when an earthquake occurs
OSHA’s Emergency Action Plans (EAP) standard states that required EAPs should address “emergencies that employers can reasonably expect in the workplace….fire; toxic chemical releases; hurricanes; tornadoes; blizzards; floods; and others.” (1910 Subpart E, App.)
Earthquakes can cause buildings and bridges to collapse, disrupt power and phone services, and sometimes trigger landslides or fires. Most people know about earthquakes in the Western U.S., but fault lines are located throughout the U.S. and can produce earthquakes at any time. Everyone in your workplace should know what to do before, during and after an earthquake occurs.
Our 11” x 17” Earthquake Preparedness Poster includes critical emergency instructions to keep your workforce informed about what to do when an earthquake occurs. It also includes guidance from OSHA and other agencies on how to prepare your workplace for this type of emergency.
