Emergency and Critical Incident Management


4 Procedures

4.1 Risk assessment

The principal or site manager must:

  • identify on-site and off-site situations that have the potential to become emergencies or critical incidents affecting the site's operations;
  • determine potential risks associated with particular situations; and
  • use the Risk and Business Continuity Management policy to assess the potential risks and develop mitigation strategies.

Guidelines

Emergencies or critical incidents can include natural disasters (for example, bushfires or floods) or human disasters (for example, arson).

The Risk and Business Continuity Management policy is available from the Policies website at www.det.wa.edu.au/policies.  The Appendices provide Risk Report and Risk Assessment Summary spreadsheets which can be used to select the situations for which emergency or critical incident planning is required.

The principal or site manager should consult with relevant school personnel (for example, the school Occupational Safety and Health Repesentative)and other personnel (for example, local government or WA Police) as part of the risk assessment process.
