Principal Emergency Response and Preparedness PDF : Requirements and Guidance
Anticipating and planning your organization’s response to an emergency situation isn’t just a good idea: it’s a federal requirement. Since 1989, OSHA has issued numerous standards that explicitly require employers to have emergency action plans for their workplaces and dozens more regulating specific materials and processes that affect the health and safety of employees. This book makes the task of identifying and understanding OSHA’s emergency response requirements virtually effortless by compiling and summarizing the most relevant requirements—53 general and 95 industry-specific—found in Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 29 Parts 1910, 1915, 1917, 1918, 1926, and 1928.
Originally published in 2004, this book continues to provide timely and relevant guidance for general industry, shipyards, marine terminals, longshoremen, construction, and agriculture regarding federal requirements for emergency action plans, fire prevention plans, and emergency planning and response. Each standard listed includes a general description of the standard’s scope; procedural, program and/or equipment requirements; and resources for finding additional information.
