Every workplace is required to observe Australian Standard (AS) 3745 Planning for emergencies in facilities, which provides the minimum standards for workplace emergency procedures and evacuation.
Are you compliant?
Business owners, organisations and management have a responsibility to provide a safe and secure workplace for workers.
Do you have emergency response plans in place and are they up to date? Workplaces change, as does legislation and other regulatory requirements. Emergency response activities must be routinely reviewed to ensure they are current to today’s standards.
Are your staff trained? Do you have designated emergency responders in your work team? People often move on or into different positions in the workplace. This impacts on existing emergency plans. Training expires and crucial skills and knowledge are forgotten when they are not put into practice. By reviewing your emergency response procedures, you are also ensuring the currency of your trained staff and identifying where more trained staff are required.
