The Workplace Emergency Management Manual (WEMM) is a simple online tool to assist small to medium-sized businesses/organisations with less than 100 people to develop a safe, planned response to the threat of emergencies in the workplace.

It is based on Australian Standard (AS) 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities.

The WEMM is a self-help tool. It assists workplaces to:

  • plan and prepare for emergencies using a risk-based approach
  • develop a warden structure
  • develop procedures for the warden structure team to follow
  • produce a workplace emergency manual.

All workplaces have potential risks that expose them to emergencies. Workplace emergency management planning will:

  • Provide early and accurate identification of workplace hazards
  • Enable you to plan towards reducing the impact of potential workplace emergencies
  • Help you to fulfil your duty of care
  • Assist with your business continuity planning

Workplace emergency management planning demonstrates a genuine regard for employee welfare, as well as reduces disruption to business operations.
