Don’t Wait to Develop an Emergency Operations Plan

Emergency operations

The consequences of fire, explosion or chemical spill may be less severe if an emergency operations plan is in place. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires organizations with more than 10 employees to prepare such plans and train staff to implement them.
