Recent incidents have resulted in a significant increase in community concerns that relate to chemicals and waste management.   As a response, Regulators will likely increase their vigilance on how they will deal with organisations that use, treat and store waste and chemicals.

Is your Emergency Response Plan adequate to protect your employees, the community, property and the environment at an incident? 

Often organisations do find that when they are put to the test, their emergency preparedness fails to meet their own expectations, the expectations of the authorities and emergency services bodies.  For Emergency Response Plans to remain current and effective, they MUST be reviewed on a regular basis and revised where necessary. 

Organisations must ensure –

  • They are familiar with emergency response laws and meeting obligations,  
  • Emergency Response Plans are updated and appropriate to their organisation, and
  • Adequate emergency preparedness training for staff.

To assist you and your organisation, the Australian Environment Business Network (AEBN) together with the experts have developed this Workshop to ensure organisations have the tools necessary to develop, update and implement adequate Emergency Response Plans.  The Workshop will provide a legal, regulatory and practical understanding of emergency management from an occupational, health, safety and environment perspective.  


PROGRAM

The Workshop will include –

  • Your legal obligations in emergencies from across jurisdictions, including:
    • a legal and regulatory perspective of your new obligations under new Victorian pollution incident laws
