Emergency Action Plan basics

Emergencies can happen at any time, so it is important to prepare for the unexpected. The purpose of an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is to facilitate and organize employer and employee action during workplace emergencies.

This Emergency Action Plan will cover essential elements, such as evacuation procedures and workplace emergency escape route assignments, procedures to account for all employees after an emergency evacuation has been completed, and means of reporting fires and other workplace emergencies.

If you have questions about safety guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic, ask a lawyer or find more resources in our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Legal Center.

Use the Emergency Action Plan document if:

  • You are an employer who is required to document emergency procedures
  • You are an employer who wants to outline safety guidelines during emergencies
  • Confusion during an unexpected emergency can make a situation worse and put lives at risk. Creating an Emergency Action Plan will ensure that employees are informed of the proper procedures to take when an emergency happens, ensuring that their safety is of the utmost concern.
