Evacuation Plans

Q: We were told that OSHA requires an evacuation plan. This seems like overkill for our three-person office. We all know how to get out of the building!

A: OSHA requires any facility with 10 or more employees to have a written evacuation plan. It makes sense, though, from a risk-management standpoint for smaller practices to have some sort of written fire safety policy. To accomplish this, draw your floor plan on graph paper and note the location of exits and fire extinguishers. Also, note steps to take in the event of a fire (call 911, press fire alarm, meet in a specified area, etc.). Be sure that your office safety policies state that exit doors are clearly marked and never locked or blocked.
