An Emergency Plan is a document that lays out all the arrangements, procedures, personnel, strategies and systems relating to emergencies in the workplace. This is a requirement for all workplaces in complying with Australian Standard 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities.
The Emergency Plan lists the members of the Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) and the Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) as well as other necessary contact information. Records of Emergency Training and Emergency Response Training are also kept in the Emergency Plan, along with Review and Maintenance logs. Specific Emergency Response Procedures for situations that may eventuate in your workplace are also documented within the Emergency Plan.
Workplace Emergency Management develops Emergency Response Procedures that include plans for situations specific to your workplace such as Flood Evacuation Plans, Bushfire Evacuation Plans, Bomb Threat Procedures and Hazardous Material Spill Procedures. Different facilities also have differing requirements for procedures.
We assess your facility and develop and deliver Emergency Response Procedures specific to your requirements. We can develop Emergency Plans & Procedures for any facility. For example Child care, Health care and Aged care facilities as well as Industrial, Retail, Multi-level and Residential facilities.
Workplace Emergency Management will consult with key stakeholders, building management and the Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking ( PCBU ) to form the EPC. The EPC is the body that continually prepares the facility for an emergency. The EPC develops, implements and maintains an Emergency Plan. We will work with the EPC and the key stakeholders to develop the Emergency Plan which documents the systems, strategies, procedures and any other arrangements that pertain to emergency response and emergency management.
This can include evacuation diagrams, identifying an emergency, how to respond in an emergency, who to tell about an emergency, who to listen to in an emergency, where to go in an emergency and the location of emergency equipment. The EPC also ensures that relevant training and exercises in the plans and procedures are provided for the ECO and all occupants of the facility. Workplace Emergency Management will work with the EPC to ensure that all obligations and requirements under AS3745-2010 are met.
Continual review of the Emergency Plan and Emergency Response Procedures is necessary to ensure that personnel lists, equipment needed and regulatory requirements are up to date. Records of the type of training and the personnel who have received this training need to be kept so that readiness for an emergency is held at a sufficient level to protect life safety. Records also need to be kept of inspection, testing and maintenance of all onsite emergency equipment.
Workplace Emergency Management stores all the records and documentation relating to your Emergency Plan & Emergency Response Procedures, Personnel Registers & Contact lists, Training & Emergency Exercises and Emergency Equipment Maintenance Logs at three separate and secure locations.
