Workplace Emergency Preparedness Guidelines

Provide Updates, Training and Documentation

Changes frequently occur to the physical layout of office spaces and buildings on campus. Changes to doors, exits, and walls, or the addition of security locks, could all influence the procedures. Emergency procedures are “living documents” that should be reviewed and updated regularly.

Perform drills in conjunction with office meetings, or after major changes in the procedures occur. To inform new hires about workplace emergency procedures, share your guide in orientation materials and request sign off by new employees.


It is essential that emergency procedure drills are documented with the results. This information should be forwarded to your respective building emergency preparedness contact.
