Graphic Products has two new guides to help facilities strengthen emergency preparedness plans. The Guide to Emergency Preparedness and Emergency Preparation Chart are the newest additions to the company’s comprehensive selection of free resources. Each provide solutions to help businesses make their facilities safer and more efficient in the event of an emergency and beyond.

“It takes a company-wide commitment to prevent facility damage and to keep workers safe. With this easy-to-use free guide and chart, safety managers have what they need to prepare their business and limit worker confusion during an emergency,” said Elena Sylvester, a product manager at Graphic Products.

The Guide to Emergency Preparedness has examples of key emergency signage and markings. To help prepare facilities for the unexpected and meet OSHA compliance, it clearly and concisely breaks down rules and requirements such as:

  • How to apply risk assessments and the Hierarchy of Controls
  • Ways to develop an OSHA-required Emergency Action Plan
  • Tips for training employees and marking exit routes
  • A visual communication checklist as part of emergency planning

The Emergency Preparation Chart is a visual representation of emergency marking using an example floor plan. It demonstrates what should be marked to help guide personnel out of harm’s way during an emergency. Keep employees safe and minimize company losses through effective emergency planning and preparation. Easy to download and share, the Emergency Preparedness guide and chart are resourceful ways to implement facility safety plans successfully.
