It should be just fine. What substrate are you using?

The texture will be fine for it to dig itself out. Due to the name, I would be concerned that that soil is full of fertilizers which can harm your scorpion. The best thing you can use is some type of coco fiber..Eco-Earth is good. This is all natural...holds moisture great and won't get funky smelling like wet peat/soil will. You can use soil if you prefer...just get some that is fertilizer/chemical free.

I'm with Bay on the substrate question. I like using a coco fiber/ultra fine sand mix but also adhere to the suggestion of coco/peat (it's not actually peat moss, it's just called peat moss. real peat moss is dead - sphagnum, which everyone calls peat, is very much alive).

your emp should be fine, I'm sure it'll dig itself out so long as you didn't dump too much over the burrow.
