Emergency Training    

Labour Law Distributors specialises in emergency preparedness training, which includes emergency evacuation procedures, firefighting and first aid training.

The OHS team consists of an evacuation leader, fire warden, first aider and H&S representative – who all play different roles in dealing with an emergency. It is; therefore, important to have a number of staff trained in the varying roles and responsibilities.

The emergency evacuation procedures course is an accredited 1-day course that provides the learner with the necessary skills to successfully manage the emergency evacuation of staff, or a building, should an emergency arise. Emergency evacuation drills should also be conducted at least twice a year, to ensure that the company environment is prepared and ready to evacuate when the need arises. We are also able to assist with the real-life planning and conducting of these drills, should you require assistance.

We provide drawn and detailed plans of the layout of the premises, where all the emergency equipment is located and where the assembly areas are.

These principles should also be implemented in your home environment, where the threat of a fire or other emergencies may become a reality.

Emergency evacuation courses
At Labour Law Distributors, we offer comprehensive courses in emergency preparedness. Lives can be saved and damage to property can be minimalised when the people are prepared and have the necessary skills accumulated from emergency response training.

There are many instances when emergency medical services, and in worst case scenarios, disaster services are not able to get to the scene in time or at all. It pays to have people who are trained in emergency response who can assess the situation and provide the correct help when necessary.

Fires, explosions, chemical releases, violence or biological releases all pose a threat to everyone in your organisation’s facilities. One way to ensure the safety of all affected populations, and reduce the risk to your organisation, is to have an evacuation plan. The beauty of this strategy is that even the smallest organisation operating with limited resources can afford to develop and implement an evacuation plan.

One of the most devastating losses to an organisation is the loss of human life. Not only is it emotionally depleting, it can involve adverse publicity, large settlements, loss of organisational leadership, and the inability to deliver programmes or services.

An emergency evacuation plan can make life-or-death differences for your staff, volunteers, visitors, vendors and programme participants. It could also mean life or death for your mission.
