In the event of an emergency, an emergency action plan can result in reducing the number of injuries and even saving lives. The purpose of an emergency action plan (EAP) is to organize and develop safe procedures for employers and employees to follow in emergency situations. The more organized the emergency action plan is, the better. A disorganized evacuation can result in injuries, damages, and overall confusion among employees. OSHA requires an employer to keep a written emergency action plan in the workplace that is available to all employees to review.
