All businesses are required to inform their employees about what to do in the event of a fire or other workplace emergency. These requirements are contained in OSHA standards addressing emergency preparedness and fire prevention. According to OSHA, emergency action plans “should address emergencies that the employer may reasonably expect in the workplace. Examples are: fire; toxic chemical releases; hurricanes; tornadoes; blizzards; floods; and others” (1910 Subpart E, Appendix). Failure to comply with OSHA’s emergency preparedness regulations can result in fines up to $12,934 per violation.
The Emergency Action Plans standard (29 CFR 1910.38) requires employers to provide workers with information on how to report a fire or other emergency evacuations.
The Portable Fire Extinguishers standard (29 CFR 1910.157) requires employers to educate employees about the general principles of fire extinguisher use.
OSHA’s General Duty Clause (29 USC 654(a)) requires employers to provide a form of employment and place of employment free from recognized hazards likely to cause serious injury or death. Recognized hazards commonly cited under this regulation include workplace violence and highly contagious illnesses.
Protect Your Employees
Educating your employees through posted notices about what to do in the event of a fire, natural disaster, or workplace violence incident can prevent serious injuries or fatalities in the event of a safety emergency.
Avoid OSHA Fines
Using workplace posters to communicate emergency safety information to employees can demonstrate good- faith compliance to an OSHA inspector who assesses your compliance with emergency preparedness standards.
