If a Facility Manager was asked if their organisation met the requirements of
Australian Standard 3745:2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities, they would of course, say yes. After all, part of their job is to ensure compliance is met and meeting these requirements tick the box. If the same Facility Manager was asked to present their Emergency Response plan, there’s a high probability that a stack of papers would be retrieved from the furthest corner of the filing cabinet. Ok… maybe it’s a slight over-exaggeration about the filing cabinet, but no doubt a paper-based plan will be presented.
So what happens during an emergency with a paper-based plan? We all know that during an emergency, the last thing you’ll want to be doing is rummaging through the stack of papers to review the process required to manage an emergency. Tell any Facility Manager that this is an ineffective way of managing emergencies and they would probably ask: “what’s the alternative?”
The alternative is to switch to digital and have all your paper-based plans accessible at your fingertips. At FirstAction, we do just that.
