Emergency Planning

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
    • information, training and instruction to relevant workers in relation to implementing the emergency procedures.
