Emergency Planning

An Emergency Action Plan (EAP) is a written document required by OSHA standards that facilitates and organizes employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies. All distilleries should have an EAP with personnel trained and equipped to deal quickly and effectively with anticipated emergency situations. It should also include a pre-incident plan that involves evaluating the protection systems, building construction, contents, and operating procedures to help emergency response personnel effectively manage emergencies with available resources. Distillery emergency procedures should be preplanned for good fire protection, and these include discovery, mobilization, fire-fighting operations, and employee training. This course details how to establish emergency action and pre-incident plans for distilleries; evaluate property, casualty, and business risks participants may face; and share best practices.
