The first step is to write down the facility address, phone number and all the important emergency contacts. This includes 911 of course, the facility owner, manager, etc. You need to add procedures that will be taken in the event there is a heart attack, a power outage, a fire, etc.
Now that you have all the information at your fingertips, you need to put it together into a professional format. It needs to be accessible by all staff members. Print it and put it in a binder in the break room. Post it on the facility’s website. Just make sure everyone has access to it.
Now that you have your EAP put together, you need to review it at least once every three months. It is an OSHA law that you do that. Sit down with your staff during a regular meeting or make the EAP available online so staff members can review it anytime they want. Make sure you encourage them to review it..
