Price: $44.00 (Inc. GST)

An integral part of an effective emergency management program is to have a pro-active Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) that oversees the emergency management at the site. TrimEVAC conduct training for the EPC to ensure members have the competency and confidence in fulfilling the roles of the committee. We can also attend EPC meetings to provide specialist input and support on emergency planning initiatives.

The plans and preparation to avoid emergencies and to cope with them effectively if they do happen, needs acceptance in the organisation that it affects. If the plans and preparation are done in isolation, with no acceptance by those in authority at the facility, the occupants will not take ownership of the procedures in emergencies. In order to get this buy-in by those in authority, the AS3745 requires that the responsibility for developing implementing and maintaining all the essential components of emergency planning be held by the EPC. The EPC must, therefore, be representative of the stakeholders in the facility.
