Do You Have an Emergency Action Plan for Your Restaurant?

An emergency action plan is a guideline for your restaurant staff to follow in the event of a fire. The plan should include an evacuation policy, escape procedures, instructions on how to operate fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems, and emergency contact information.

While creating an emergency action plan is important, it’s only effective if your staff is educated on the plan. This can usually be done when onboarding new staff or training current staff on how to operate fire extinguishers, which is mandated by OSHA.
