Legislation, Emergency Plans and Emergency Procedures
The migration from OHS legislation to WHS legislation introduced a critical change here for many organisations. Under OHS legislation, only dangerous goods sites and major hazard facilities were required to have documented emergency plans (plus a few exceptions). All other sites were only required to have emergency procedures. Under WHS legislation, all PCBU – that is all work locations must have an emergency plan. Many organisations, unless they have had dealings in this space with Regulators or specialists in the field may not even be aware of their non-compliance.
WHS also introduced a number of items to emergency plans. They must be effective – and this requires testing, and they require review.
