An emergency evacuation plan is an integral part of complying with OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) rules and regulations. Every company, big and small, should have a specified evacuation plan in place that has been laid out long before any disaster. The evacuation plan should detail all the specified evacuation routes as well as the designated emergency assembly point for staff to gather in case of an emergency. Just as important, the evacuation plan should also list emergency contacts, such as an ambulance service, local fire department and local police station. It should also be visible throughout the building. The specific fire exits, locations of fire alarms, medical kits and fire hoses & extinguishers should also appear on the evacuation plan.
