Not a problem. Again, if intelligently designed (and, in this case, if designed to meet minimum code standards), egress is no problem in an earth-sheltered building. It is, perhaps, a litte more difficult to design for in a true subterranean building, but, again, not at all impossible to design for. Take a look at the designs of underground pioneer Malcolm Wells, for example. Wells designs most of his buildings at grade and berms them. In such a design, there is no more difficulty with egress than in any other structure built on grade.
