Emergency Management PlansWe maintain and implement Emergency Management Plans (EMP's)
All employers have a duty in the WHS Act & Regulation 2011 to prepare, maintain and implement an emergency plan. We base our emergency management plans (EMPs) on the practical assessment of hazards associated with an event or workplace and the possible consequences of an emergency occurring as a result of those hazards.
When developing an emergency management plan (EMP) our experts consider the application of all relevant laws, including public health laws and state or territory disaster plans. Avert Risk Management (an ACES business) can assist clients at all stages of the Emergency Management process in accordance with the WHS Act & Regulations 2011 and the process defined within the Australian Standard AS/NZS 3745:2010 – Planning for emergencies in facilities.
In-line with the WHS Act and Regulations 2011, our Emergency Management Plans detail:
Notifying Emergency Services
Medical Treatment and Assistance
Effective communication plans with all workers at the workplace
Testing of the emergency procedures
Information, training and instruction to workers
