Does OSHA have any requirements around emergency shelters or tornadoes?
OSHA 1910 for General Industry—does not have a standard about tornadoes or requiring a “severe weather shelter.” However, OSHA 1910.38 does require employers to have an Emergency Action Plan (EAP)—in certain circumstances—like in Process Safety Management.
There are many inclement weather situations which require workers to take shelter or shelter-in-place. In these situations, OSHA does not have a standard requiring employers to have a “severe weather shelter.” Instead, OSHA provides preparedness guidance—that includes use of a shelter as best practice.
