Maps showing fire evacuation routes and severe weather shelter information must be posted in university buildings. EH&S prepares maps by request of building occupants. Requestors need to supply information needed for the maps – location of eye wash stations, fire extinguishers, pull stations, meeting point in the event of evacuation, etc. Buildings/departments are responsible for printing and posting the maps.
For most buildings, the emergency maps satisfy OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.38 regarding Emergency Action Plans which states "An emergency action plan must be in writing, kept in the workplace, and available to employees for review."
University buildings have identified severe weather shelter areas which are designated on the emergency maps.
Every university building and department should develop a severe weather notification plan and identify shelter areas so that in the event the campus is hit by severe weather, building occupants are notified of impending danger and safely evacuated to shelter.
If there is no information available or your building does not appear on the drop down list, please contact Angie Jewett at 294-8090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
