Some people (for example children or people with learning difficulties) may not fully understand the rules for evacuation. These people may need arrangements in place to help them in emergencies which must be described and communicated to those involved in a Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).
Although each office building exhibits unique geographical and operational hazards, there are commonalities that may need to be addressed through a HSE program.
The OSHA requirement to develop a written EAP or fire prevention plan is based on the number of employees that are physically in a facility at any time of the working day. The name or job title of every employee who may be contacted by employees who need more information about the plan or an explanation of their duties under the plan.


Job and site-specific emergency response training should be implemented for current employees, new hires, and supervisors. However in order to maintain OSHA safety standards, office building management should include a Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) program that identifies regulatory requirements, including  site safety and evacuation procedures. To establish a systematic response with a safe and orderly office building evacuation, HSE programs should include an incident or emergency action plan (EAP) and associated employee training. The regulation states that employers with 10 or fewer employees do not have to create a written emergency action plan.
A wide variety of emergencies, both manmade and natural, may require an office building to be evacuated or shelter in place.


Building inspections, safety audits, and evacuation drills, can identify the need for site specific mitigation opportunities and necessary safety training to correct, minimize or eliminate unsafe procedures or processes.
According to OSHA, the purpose of an EAP is to facilitate and organize employer and employee actions during workplace emergencies.
