Workplace emergencies are rare, but when they happen, it’s usually without warning. Fire, heat illness, heart attacks, toxic chemical spills, confined spaces, explosions, natural disasters—even workplace violence—can occur in the blink of an eye. Under the new California administration enforcement and fines are increasing and the government is becoming even more aggressive and punitive.

Failure to have an emergency action plan in writing is an oft-cited offense under Cal/OSHA rules. Having a written emergency action plan is required for each location an employer has employees. Whether your company or your client’s company is in construction, agriculture, manufacturing, or retail – noncompliance is no longer an option.
