What to consider when making an emergency plan.

When working out your emergency plan, you must take into account:

  • The size and location of the workplace
  • The number of workers
  • The nature of the work being carried out and the workplace hazards
  • The types of emergency situations your workplace may face. For example, fire or a gas leak, electricity or water outage, natural disasters, and robberies.

Emergency plans should be tailored to the type of work and workplace. If the work is low risk, emergency plans may not need to be long or complicated. In higher risk situations, more comprehensive plans will be required.

All workers should know who is responsible for activating and coordinating emergency procedures and what they must do to keep themselves and others safe in an emergency.
