Aged care facilities face different challenges compared to other workplaces (especially those not in the healthcare industry) when it comes to emergency management. Many of the clients in an aged care facility are not physically able to respond to emergencies or evacuate as safely as those who do not face physical challenges, and the needs of each client need to be taken into consideration when forming your emergency management policies and procedures.
Workplace Emergency Management understands that aged care facilities require thorough and tailored solutions for their emergency management planning and compliance, to ensure staff clients and visitors alike are able to safely respond to an emergency. We provide everything necessary to give you and those in your facility the confidence and competence to manage emergencies, whether medical, fire or otherwise.
Workplace Emergency Management provides extensive emergency management solutions, including:
- Evacuation Diagrams
- Emergency Training
- Emergency Plans
- Fire Training
- Warden/Fire Warden Training
- Fire Extinguisher and other Equipment Testing and Maintenance
- Formation and training of Emergency Control Organisation (ECO)
- Formation and training of Emergency Planning Committee (EPC)
- Workplace Health and Safety
- Staff Training and Awareness
We want you, your staff, your clients, and anyone else that visits your facility to be as safe as possible, by assessing and advising what measures you need to take to become compliant and provide a healthy and safe workplace. Life safety is so important, especially for those who need assistance with their daily living.
Workplace Emergency Management’s comprehensive assessment of your facility will establish and identify:
- Other structures
- Emergency likelihood
From this assessment, your consultant will then develop highly-detailed and easily readable Emergency Diagrams, as well as extensive Emergency Plans and recommendations for necessary Emergency Training for staff in the facility.
We also offer and facilitate First Aid training, including units of competency that we recommend anyone in Aged Care undertake to ensure they are fully prepared for the types of emergencies they may encounter, such as:
- HLTAID002 Provide Basic Emergency Life Support
- HLTAID004 Provide an Emergency First Aid Response in an Education and Care Setting
Everything that Workplace Emergency Management advises and implements is in compliance with Australian Standards AS3745-2010, the Workplace Health and Safety Act, and any other legislation relevant to your industry. Let us help you bring your facility and staff to compliance, and keep you there with our detailed and secure record-keeping that allows us to monitor exactly when revisions/renewals for all emergency documentation, equipment and training are due. All you have to do is focus on your clients.
