Exit Doors, Exit Routes, and Evacuation Plans: How to Ensure You’re Meeting OSHA Standards and that Employees are Trained to Safely Exit

Live Webinar: Wednesday, December 11, 2019

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to ensure that exit doors, exit routes, and evacuation plans meet OSHA standards.



Employers are responsible for ensuring that employees know how to evacuate the workplace if an emergency occurs. All employers must comply with OSHA’s rules concerning exit routes. Identifying and maintaining emergency exits and emergency exit routes are an important part of a workplace’s emergency action plan. Employers who take the time to thoroughly develop an evacuation plan and hold evacuation drills provide their employees with a safer workplace and may even save lives.

Consider, too, that failure to adhere to applicable OSHA requirements could lead to costly citations. Recently, OSHA cited a national dollar store retailer and assessed close to $900,000 in proposed penalties related to the unsafe back-of-store storage of merchandise and blocked walkways and exit routes. OSHA reported that during its investigation, a stack of boxes actually fell and nearly injured an employee at one of the retailer’s Idaho-based stores. The OSHA inspector also uncovered that a similar incident had previously and resulted in actual injuries in that particular workplace.

Join us on December 11 for an all-new webinar on how to ensure that your exit doors and routes and emergency evacuation plans meet OSHA standards. Our presenter will answer questions such as:

  • How many exit routes must a facility have?
  • What are the design and construction requirements for exit routes?
  • What are minimum widths for feeder aisles and cubical entrances in an office setting?
  • Does our facility need an evacuation route map?
  • Is there a certain number of evacuation drills that we need to have each year?

And, after attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify primary and secondary exits
  • Maintain exit routes to ensure that they work
  • Implement effective evacuation drills so employees know exactly what to do and not do—if they need to exit in a hurry
  • Recognize how to assist the exiting of employees with visual, hearing, or mobility impairments
  • Designate the most effective assembly areas
  • And more!
