When it comes to implementing a medical evacuation plan, your business will likely have to follow various OSHA requirements. OSHA requires that all employers maintain an Emergency Action Plan that details evacuation procedures. A written evacuation plan must be posted where it can be seen by employees in an emergency situation in companies with more than ten employees.
New hazards, new layouts of the building, or significant personnel changes will necessitate reviewing the existing plan. As with most things, regularly making adjustments to your evacuation, emergency plan will be beneficial to your team and to adhere to OSHA guidelines.
Establishing a Plan
In the chaos of an emergency at work, most people want to run as fast as they can and escape the building; however, doing that increases their risk of injury and damage to your property. Leadership must be composed of calm, level-headed individuals capable of coordinating essential tasks and overseeing an orderly evacuation. With the help of a strong leadership team and a stable evacuation plan, you can rest assured that your team will be led to safety and you will avoid excess damage on your property.
Your evacuation plans should let employees know exactly where to go after leaving the building. It is important to stay together after an evacuation, because that enables the head counters to get a clear picture of who left the building and what happened to those who stayed. Furthermore, it helps emergency personnel determine how many people are still in the building and where those people are safely removed from the situation, thanks to your evacuation plan.
Keep Employees Safe & Calm
In most cases of danger, employees are bound to panic if there is not a solid medical evacuation plan in place. Once panic sets in, your employees may lose the ability to focus, and soon will begin to behave irrationally or dangerously.
Employees with an evacuation plan have a clear understanding of what they should do, and can use a checklist to guide them. Step-by-step progression relieves stress and can keep your team focused on their objective: getting to safety.
