February 24, 2012

The best way to protect yourself and others is to prepare for an emergency before it happens by doing a thorough assessment of the workplace. Think about possible emergency situations and evaluate your workplace to see if it is sufficiently prepared in the following areas:

- Design and construction requirements for exit routes [29 CFR 1910.36]
- Maintenance, safeguards, and operational features for exit routes [29 CFR 1910.37]
- Emergency action plans (EAP) [29 CFR 1910.38]
- Fire prevention plans (FPP) [29 CFR 1910.39]
- Portable fire extinguishers [29 CFR 1910.157]
- Fixed extinguishing systems [29 CFR 1910.160]
- Fire detection systems [29 CFR 1910.164]
- Employee alarm systems [29 CFR 1910.165]
