Emergency procedures manual

The USQ emergency procedures manual (PDF 4.12mb) has been prepared and issued by USQSafe in accordance with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and Australian Standard 3745-2010 (Planning for Emergencies in Facilities).

The manual provides procedures for the safety of people in buildings, structures and workplaces during emergencies.  Although this manual has been written to provide procedures for all types of occupiable buildings, structures and workplaces within USQ, there may be new or missed facilities that will require personnel to apply the generic nature of general emergency procedures. 

The manual details the structure for the USQ Emergency control organisation (ECO) and the lines of authority and responsibility.  The authority of ECO officers when they are acting in their role in an emergency is also addressed.
