Dear Mr C.Muthukrishnan
I am not aware of any statutory requirement in this aspect.
You may please check the Factory act provisions and also
in QMS like ISO.
Logically it should not be very far off for a person to go to the assembly point.
The route to assembly point should be safe.
The idea is to gather all the people in a safe place.
This is the priority.
The second one is to extend any help at the scene of trouble.
This is discretionary and is left to the Operation / Maintenance people.

No such requirements in mentioned in EHS acts and rules. practically it is not possible !
For high hazard industries, Large no of tanks with tonns of capacity installed in kilometers. oil & gas companies spread in 100 to 1000 acres. In such plants Hazardous area spread around atleast 1km to 10km area.
for small to medium scale Industries plant spread in 5 to 50 acres. If govt precribes any fixed distance, it will not give effective results.
In practical assembly points are created at four ends of plant. based on the wind direction , during emergency employees will evacuate from safe gates.

Dear Frients
Practically i person approximate occupy 1sqm so if 5oo employees employees need to be assembled, approx 500 sqm open space for assembly point is required
- location of assembly points to be selected as it is open to air space like No Buildinds in the vicinity of Assembly Points , No HT Tower Etc , Not on Internal Roads
- Emergency assebly should have a provision of Emergency Lights also
