Emergencies and crises are a part of life and can impact the workplace in many forms including heatwaves, fire, flood, criminal activity, equipment failure, hazardous material release, failure of utility services and medical emergencies. Emergency events can introduce hazardous situations not normally encountered in day to day operations. Implementing comprehensive emergency preparedness training, management plans and response procedures tailored to your workplace and industry ensures your organisation and staff have the necessary training, knowledge, instructions, command and control framework, resourcing and equipment to not only respond effectively but recover afterwards.

Preserving Safety and Productivity
Emergencies and crises have the potential to impact the health and safety of people, can damage organisational reputation and impact productivity, operations and the environment. Establishing, planning, designing, implementing and maintaining an effective emergency management plan, sub plans and response procedures ensures organisations have the necessary tools, emergency preparedness training, resourcing and equipment to reduce the impact of negative consequences, as far as practicable, and ensure business continuity. Ongoing exercising and testing of emergency management plans and associated procedures, resources and equipment is essential to ensure effective, timely response and management of an emergency or crisis.
