Protecting children and keeping them safe in an emergency requires a slightly different approach to dealing with adults, and Workplace Emergency Management understands the importance of emergency management solutions that are comprehensive, compliant, and tailored to your childcare centre’s circumstances.
We ensure that your childcare centre is operating at the highest standards for health and safety and that you and your staff are educated and confident in performing emergency management duties. You are looking after the most important part of a parent’s life, which is why there cannot be any doubt or hesitation in an emergency. We empower your staff with the knowledge to effectively handle an emergency while keeping the children in their care safe from harm.
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
Workplace Emergency Management offers standalone fire extinguisher training to enable confident and safe operation of fire extinguishers in a workplace fire. This includes the selection of the correct extinguisher for the type of fire, what are the different types of fire, correct & safe techniques for the use & operation of the different types of fire extinguisher and practical exercises in the use of extinguishers.
We want you, your staff, the children in your care, and anyone who 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 young children, as they do not have the capacity to understand the finer points of emergency management and must rely on those looking after them.
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 Childcare or otherwise working with children to 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
- Childcare – Asthma and Anaphylaxis Combined
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 the happiness of the children in your care.
When you partner with Workplace Emergency Management, you’re ensuring that all of your staff have the knowledge, competence and confidence to face an emergency and keep themselves, the children, and any other occupants of your facility safe, while your facility as a whole is compliant with all relevant legislation, standards and acts.
