Building Emergency
Action Planning (BEAP)

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety in collaboration with University Public Safety developed a Building Emergency Action Plan (BEAP) to assist departments in preparing for building emergencies as required by university policy (OSU Occupational Health & Safety Policy – 3.61); the Ohio Fire Code – 1301:7-7-04 (D) Section 404 Fire Safety & Evacuation Plans; and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard 29 CFR 1910.38 as required by the Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 4167 (Public Employees Risk Reduction Act).

The BEAP Template is intended for use by departments that occupy university facilities and should be completed as a building plan including all departments and areas of the building in the planning and implementation process. The BEAP Template was created to include information for all departments to use during emergencies; however, some departments may choose to remove certain sections or add information based on their individual departmental needs.

BEAPs are coordinated through Public Safety, Emergency Management and Fire Prevention. Contact Bob Armstrong at 614-247-4276 for additional information or assistance completing a BEAP.
