Australian Standard 3745:2010 has been developed to provide a uniform code for managing emergency procedures and evacuations in the workplace. Adherence to this standard is not compulsory, but is widely recognised as best practice and the benchmark for developing compliant and effective emergency management programs.
There are new and changed key elements in the emergency plans
Standardised colour codes on the Evacuation Maps are now incorporated into AS3745
- The new standard has removed the explicit exemption from liability for wardens as long as they act in ‘good faith’.
It is now advised that “facility owners, managers, occupiers and employers” should obtain professional advice
