Health and Safety Act and Evacuation Procedure

What is the Act and the Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 and the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1996 are two Governmental regulatory documents containing sub-sections governing the procedures for evacuations buildings in an emergency situation.

Every building that is accessible by the public, or the public has access to, even commercial buildings, are considered to be Public Buildings and thus governed by the Act.

"The OSH Act places certain duties of care for safety and health at the workplace on employers, principal/main contractors, sub-contractors, people involved in labour hire, employees, self-employed people, manufacturers, designers, importers and suppliers. It also places emphasis in the duties of care on the prevention of accidents and injury or harm."
