Egress and emergency action plans play a critical role in preparing workers to respond to fires and explosions, which account for over 200 deaths and 5,000 injuries in the workplace annually.
In addition to these dangerous situations, workers should be fully prepared for severe weather, medical emergencies, chemical releases, bomb threats and a wide range of other unexpected hazards.
Although it's impossible to eliminate every possible risk, proper training in safety procedures can greatly reduce the number of injuries and fatalities in the event of extreme hazards.
