by , 03 September 2014
When your company faces an emergency situation you need to act fast. This is particularly true if there are employees with injuries or if a fire breaks out.

But you can't manage this whole crisis situation on your own. And even if you call emergency services, they may take too long to arrive.

But that's why you appoint two health and safety teams to help you in this situation. Here's who they are...

 

This is the first health and safety team you must appoint to help in an emergency

 
You have a legal obligation under the OHS Act to appoint at least one first aider if you have more than ten employees.
 
Your first aid team is of vital importance during emergencies. This team, whether it's one person or five, must report for duty if anyone has an injury after an emergency.
 
Your first aid team must know how to deal with these high pressure situations so they can give employees appropriate treatment. 
 
While first aiders help save your employees, the other health and safety team will help save your premises.
