OSHA 1910.38 requires facilities with more than 10 employees to have a written Emergency
Action Plan to protect employees and the company from hazardous situations. The Emergency Action Plan serves
as a guide for employees in the event of an emergency at your facility.
Emergency Action Plan Training
Propane marketers must designate and train employees to follow Emergency Action Plan procedures to
a safe and orderly evacuation of other employees.
Employee Alarm System
Propane marketers must have and maintain an employee alarm system. This system must use a distinctive
signal for each purpose.
Protocol and Procedures for Emergencies
Including procedures for reporting a fire or other emergency, procedures for emergency evacuation and
route assignments, procedures to be followed by employees who remain to operate critical plant
before evacuation, procedures to account for all employees after evacuation.
Regular Review of Emergency Action Plan
Propane marketers must review the Emergency Action Plan with each employee covered by the plan:
- When the plan is developed or the employee is initially assigned to a job
- When the employee's responsibilities under the plan change
- When the plan is changed
