Emergency Action Plans

The Laboratory Safety Manual requires principal investigators and laboratory supervisors to develop emergency action plans for their laboratories. Refer to Section C. Emergency Planning in the manual for a description of the information that should be included. An Emergency Action Plan template has been developed to help you get started.

Post your completed Emergency Action Plan near the room exit for easy retrieval during an incident. The plan should be reviewed and updated annually. All personnel must be trained on the emergency action plan and the training documented.
