* Conditions under which an evacuation would be necessary;
* Conditions under which it may be better to shelter-in-place;
* A clear chain of command and designation of the person in your business authorized to order an evacuation or shutdown;
* Specific evacuation procedures, including routes and exits;
* Specific evacuation procedures for high-rise buildings;
o For Employers
o For Employees
* Procedures for assisting visitors and employees to evacuate, particularly those with disabilities or who do not speak English;
* Designation of what, if any, employees will remain after the evacuation alarm to shut down critical operations or perform other duties before evacuating;
* A means of accounting for employees after an evacuation;
* Special equipment for employees; and
* Appropriate respirators.
