Safety in Healthcare – Emergency Procedures
Acting responsibly during an emergency evacuation is of critical importance to not only save lives, but also prevent putting others at risk. Emergency evacuation procedures apply to everyone on the premises, including patients, office staff, visitors, and contractors.
This video based training program focuses on emergency evacuation procedures in a healthcare facility. It introduces the Emergency Control Organisation, consisting of Chief Wardens, Deputy Chief Wardens, and Floor/Area Wardens, who have the authority to manage evacuations.
It also explains the role of firewalls and the importance of knowing evacuation routes, fire exits, and assembly points.
After watching the video, or completing the self-paced eLearning format, workers will learn:
- The roles of the Emergency Control Organisation
- The importance of following instructions from wardens and evacuating in an orderly manner to designated assembly areas
- The function and importance of key elements such as firewalls and fire doors
