Building Disaster Plans

Each building at UAB should have a Building Disaster Plan that addresses such scenarios as fire, bomb threat, loss of electrical power and severe weather. To protect yourself and others, you should familiarize yourself with your unit's safety plan before danger arises. 

That includes:
  • A thorough knowledge of the proper safety rules to be followed
  • Selections and designation of the best shelter you have
  • A reliable method of receiving information
  • Drills to test and practice the plan
If your unit does not have a plan, a UAB Campus Building Emergency Plan template is available online. The plan is generic and contains the basic elements you will need to tailor it for the specifics of your unit and building. Contact UAB Occupational Health & Safety at 934-2487 for assistance.
