Session 2: Emergency Evacuation of People With Disabilities – Is Your Facility Prepared?
Date & Time
Wednesday, April 5, 2023, 8:40 AM - 9:40 AM


Facility managers are required by OSHA to have a written emergency response plan for their buildings.  But is your plan up-to-date regarding building employees who are disabled or with reduced mobility? You may have purchased stairway evacuation chairs or lightweight transport wheelchairs for emergencies.  If so, do people know where they are stored and how to use them?  And what about other planning? Do you have lists of the employees in your buildings who will require assistance in the case of an emergency, with details on what assistance they will need? Are these lists updated on a regular basis, to take into account employee accidents (broken legs, etc.) or other reduced mobility? What about disabled people working overtime, outside of regular building hours – are these situations part of the planning? Learn about this important topic in this informative presentation.
