There are numerous resources – Check the Safety List’s archives – I think there are a ton of links there.  Also – a quick google search will get you several college plans that are readily available.


The big things are

1)      It should be posted in each laboratory and in prominent locations

2)      There should be a main contact number or action that will get to some one who knows the details of the action plans.

3)      It should be reviewed at the beginning of each semester or quarter for the students in the laboratory

4)      There should be an evacuation map in each room.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Emergency Management Plan


I’m looking for some help in drafting an emergency management plan for our college teaching laboratories.  There was a recent accident where it was the lab instructor who became incapacitated.  It pointed out several areas of emergency response that need to be improved.


Does anyone have such a plan in place that has been shown to work?  Or is someone aware of resources available for help in drafting such a plan?


Thank you,
