Evacuate Employees During a Fire

Key Points

  • Employers must have an emergency evacuation plan in writing and posted in a high-traffic area, along with a map of exit routes.
  • Employers should give regular drills to make sure that all alarms work and can be heard by every employee and that every employee knows what to do and is comfortable doing it.
  • Employers should have a way to make sure that all employees are out of the building and accounted for when an emergency situation such as a fire occurs.
