In addition to being a valuable tool to save lives and minimize loss in the event of an emergency, an Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is also an OSHA requirement. There are several regulatory requirements when it comes to creating an EAP which can make the task of staying in compliance difficult. The Wisconsin Safety Council can alleviate some of this strain with the Emergency Action Plan Development service. Our Safety Managers are well-versed in all OSHA regulations and have experience in creating EAPs across all industries. We can help you create an EAP that is customized to your facility to keep your employees safe and ease your regulatory burden.
