Emergency Planning

Saturday, November 28, 2015

An emergency plan is a written set of instructions that outlines what workers and others at the workplace should do in an emergency. An emergency plan must provide for the following:
• emergency procedures, including:

− an effective response to an emergency
− evacuation procedures
− notifying emergency service organisations at the earliest opportunity
− medical treatment and assistance, and
− effective communication between the person authorised to coordinate the emergency response and all people at the workplace
• testing of the emergency procedures—including the frequency of testing, and
• information, training and instruction to relevant workers in relation to implementing the emergency procedures.
