EMERGENCY PROCEDURE PLANS
In the event of an emergency, it can be easy to become flustered, disoriented and confused, especially when there is no formal plan or warning system in place to instruct you what to do.
The key in an emergency is to be prepared with an emergency procedure plan from Fire Safe ANZ.
At Fire Safe ANZ, we can develop a customised emergency procedure plan for your business; the plan will contain site-specific information for your building so that all occupants and visitors know how to respond to a fire or emergency.
All emergency evacuation procedures and planning provided by Fire Safe ANZ fully complies with Australian Standards – AS 3745-2010 Emergency Control Organisation and Procedures for buildings, structures and workplaces.
What does an Emergency Procedure Plan include?
Effectively planning for an emergency involves many facets, including first aid, evacuation and fire incident plans; with careful preparation and planning, a finalised emergency procedure plan will assist building occupants in a variety of emergency situations.
Site Specific Details
If you need to call the police, fire or ambulance services in an emergency or you need to evacuate the building immediately, some of the first information you will need will be site specific, such as:
- Building name, address and phone numbers;
- Names of any wardens that are trained in the building;
- Contact details for all on-site personnel with emergency training; and
- Emergency evacuation diagrams.
Emergency evacuation diagrams are particularly important, as they provide staff, visitors and other building occupants with the closest exit route. While emergency lighting systems will help to guide the way, being familiar with the basic layout of the building will help you to keep your orientation if there is a blackout or thick smoke in the building.
Procedure Specific Details
Workplaces can experience a variety of emergencies, including fire incidents, medical emergencies, first aids and civil disorder or bomb threats.
In all of these situations, a specific procedure needs to be followed to ensure the situation is dealt with correctly, minimising risks, injuries and casualties.
Having this information all in one place with an emergency procedure plan will ensure building occupants can easily find important information in the event of an emergency.
