What to do in case of an emergency

  • Remind your employees, contractors and subcontractors at the premises of all emergency warning systems in your local area.

  • Contact the relevant emergency services (SES, police, fire, ambulance) or call 000.

  • Follow emergency services personnel instructions. Depending on the emergency, you may have time to switch off electricity, gas and water, board up windows or sandbag entryways.

  • Implement your emergency procedures - ensure everyone is accounted for and evacuated to a safe location outside the building or to a designated evacuation centre.

  • Locate copies or back-ups of your registration, financial, insurance, customer data and other important business information. These should be stored in a secure offsite location or in cloud-based storage.

  • Locate your emergency contact list and contact the relevant people to inform them about your situation and whereabouts.

  • Keep yourself updated – listen to local radio or television updates and follow official emergency social media channels (e.g. Twitter). If it’s weather related, visit the Bureau of Meteorology website.
 Find emergency information for your state or territory.

Maintaining business

  • Identify critical business areas and the minimum functions required to keep your business running.

  • Arrange back up for essential services (e.g. telecommunications, electricity, gas, water and fuel).

  • If possible relocate your business to a temporary location (such as a temporary business centre, hotel, someone's home or an office provided by a service provider) or arrange for your employees to work remotely.

  • If you need to arrange backup employees who have been cross-trained in key areas.

  • Set up alternative channels of distribution for your products and/or services (e.g. e-commerce website or online auction account).
