Emergency plans

A PCBU must ensure an emergency plan is prepared for the workplace. This is a written set of instructions that outlines what workers and others at the workplace should do in an emergency. It 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
  • 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.

For further information see Regulation 43 of the Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations and the Emergency plans fact sheet.

Important

You must check with your WHS regulator if a model Code of Practice has been implemented in your jurisdiction. Check with your WHS Regulator.
