About Emergency Preparedness Training

Emergencies at work can pose an immediate and significant risk to you, your staff and your property. Preparing for any kind of emergency is critical to minimise the potential harm of a critical workplace incident.

Our online emergency preparedness course helps you understand and implement effective emergency response plans. You’ll learn practical emergency management techniques to help prepare you and your teams for any urgent situation.

Why is this Emergency Preparedness Course Importance?

Every organisation must adequately prepare for emergencies that may occur during their operations. Preparedness must include having appropriate equipment on hand, plus trained first aiders and other emergency staff in place. And every employee has to know and understand their role.

Failing to prepare emergency response measures leaves your staff vulnerable to significant injury and loss of life in an emergency event. You’ll also be exposed to legal action, including fines for non-compliance, as well as irreparable damage to your organisation’s reputation.

What are your Responsibilities for Emergency Preparedness?

Employers must follow emergency preparedness guidelines to ensure the safety of their employees and create a secure working environment.

Legislation demands employers:

  • Place clear and visible signs that display emergency exit routes
  • Establish an emergency response plan and communicate it to employees
  • Conduct a comprehensive risk assessment to identify and mitigate possible hazards in the workplace
  • Establish clear, efficient communication protocols to ensure a prompt response to an emergency
  • Provide necessary information and training to staff to familiarise them with emergency procedures
