Health Care Facility

Health Care Facility

 

Emergency Compliance Services conducts training courses designed specifically for Health Care Facilities that meets the requirements of the WHS Act 2011 along with Australian Standard 4083-2010 Planning for Emergencies - Health Care Facilities & NSW Health Policy Directive - Fire Safety in Health Care Facilities.

 

Unlike AS 3745-2010 ‘Planning for emergencies in facilities’,  AS 4083-2010 ‘Planning for emergencies – Health care facilities’ deals specifically with emergencies occurring internally and externally to a health care facility and how local staff are relied upon to respond.

 

The term ‘health care facility’ refers to a hospital, nursing home, residential care or any other facility that provides health care services as defined in the Building Code of Australia (BCA).

 

The objective of AS4083 Planning for emergencies – Health Care Facilities is to assist health care facilities in effectively planning for both internal and external emergencies. This Standard is used in conjunction with AS3745, Emergency control organisation and procedures for buildings, structures and workplaces.
