While it is normal for emergencies to have an element of surprise when they occur, well-rehearsed plans help prevent that surprise from spurring chaos.
Additionally, the plan should provide for the safety of visitors and outside contractors who may be on site, as well as anyone who has mobility challenges or would otherwise require assistance during an emergency. Companies must reinvent themselves as places where the best people want to strut their stuff. While every facility's plan is unique, the following elements should be part of every emergency response plan. During large response efforts, this helps to keep everyone focused on their specific roles and prevents personnel from getting pulled in too many directions.

These plans met the letter of the law, and most still would be adequate to satisfy certain regulations. Floor-level markings help both employees and responders navigate in less-than-ideal conditions.
But being prepared for emergencies is much more involved than having clear exit routes and the tools and supplies onsite to clean up a spill. Establishing assembly points that are away from the building gets people out of harm's way and also helps supervisors take attendance to ensure that everyone has made it safely out of the building. The employees and management of the facility have accomplished this feat through engagement, personal responsibility for safety, humor and training.

Employees need to know what specific actions they are expected to take when there is an emergency. Even if their only action is to locate the nearest exit and get out, it should be documented in the plan and communicated and reviewed during training and regular drills.
