Important Training Course Information

What Workplace Emergency Planning Legislation applies?

All workplaces are subject to some form of Emergency Management legislation.

Workplace Health and Safety Regulations” (WHSRs)

https://worksafe.tas.gov.au/laws/the_legislation/acts_and_regulations

The Regulations apply to all workplaces and detail broad requirements for emergency preparedness and response. There are also a number of Codes of Practice such as Managing the Work Environment and Facilities Part 5 Emergency Plans that are useful tools.

General Fire Regulations 2010 (GFRs)

https://www.legislation.tas.gov.au/view/html/inforce/current/sr-2010-136

What do we need to do to comply with Legislation?

All workplaces fall under the WHSRs whilst only some fall under the GFRs therefore you should enquire to see if the GFRs apply to your workplace.

If your workplace falls under the GFRs your emergency plan should be drafted in accordance with Australian Standard AS3745 as it applies to Tasmanian workplaces. AS3745 gives a good source of information regarding; the initial scope of training, the requirement for the initial training to be conducted by a competent person and the need to establish an Emergency Planning Committee.

Do I have to be re-trained?

It is important that once trained, Wardens and Chief Wardens engage in some form of Skills Refresher activity.  This may be achieved by one or a combination of the following:

  • Re-training
  • Evacuation/response exercises
  • Table top emergency exercises
  • Revision of roles and responsibilities
  • Training/revision on any communication system in the workplace, (DECT phones, EWIS, Radios, etc.)
  • Any other activity deemed necessary by the EPC (Emergency Planning Committee)

Emergency exercises should be designed to test not only staff knowledge but also to ensure that the emergency procedures serve their purpose

The decision to undertake formal re-training should be made on an organisational basis and should be based on factors such as the level of risk and how regularly Wardens and Chief Wardens have practised their skills and knowledge. All measures taken to test the effectiveness of emergency procedures should be reviewed and documented.  This should also include documenting any of the refresher activities listed above.

Whilst it is common practise to undertake training every two to three years this decision should be made on an organisational basis and there is no legislative requirement to undertake re-training at prescribed intervals. For further information regarding compliance refer to Regulation 43 of the Workplace Health & Safety Regulations:
