What Is An Emergency Action Plan?

Many companies house hazardous substances, such as anhydrous ammonia, that could potentially be released at their facilities.  Other disasters such as fires, earthquakes, tornados, or various other types of inclement weather could occur at a facility as well.  Since these events are beyond our client’s control, it is necessary to develop an Emergency Action Plan as specified by OSHA, so our clients have a way to promptly and safely respond to any emergency situation.   


An Emergency Action Plan is based on anticipated events, therefore both OSHA and the EPA enforce regulations regarding evacuation procedures.  This plan must address the methodology to help control the situation at hand.
