Planning for Emergencies in Facilities

We provide ongoing support and assistance with the requirements and obligations that apply to your facility under AS 3745-2010.

In broad terms, this Australian Standard lays out the recommended framework for emergency planning in the workplace to meet the Code of Practice on Managing the Work Environment and Facilities. This Code of Practice, as issued by Safe Work Australia, provides a practical guide to complying with the WHS Act and the Work Health and Safety Regulations in your workplace or facility. (Workplace Health and Safety Regulation 2011 – Regulation 43)

As part of maintaining the health and safety of all occupants in your facility, the Code places as much emphasis on Emergency Plans as it does The Work Environment, Welfare Facilities and Guidance for Specific Types of Works. In practice, this means that providing emergency plans and procedures is just as important in the workplace as the provision of the lunch room, toilet facilities, adequate lighting, outdoor shade and the quality & temperature of the air inside your facility.

Workplace Emergency Management bases all training on Australian Standard 3745-2010 and WHS Regulation 2011.
