STAFF SAFETY TRAINING
Training saves lives. Learn to respond appropriately to life threatening emergencies.
Prioritise what to do in the seconds, minutes, hours and days following an earthquake.
Following a Wellington earthquake most CBD businesses immediately evacuate their building using standard fire evacuation procedures, inadvertently placing staff at risk of serious harm. Don’t learn by mistake – book a training session.
EARTHQUAKE SAFETY AUDIT
An earthquake safety audit facilitates informed decisions and demonstrates HSWA compliance. Our Earthquake Safty Audit includes earthquake specific evacuation procedures, identifies hazards requiring seismic bracing and cost estimates.
It is not possible to make anything earthquake proof. Properly installed seismic restraints reduce the risk of serious injury or being trapped in your building. If it’s big, heavy or irreplaceable – secure it. Disaster Prepare professionally secure heavy items to NZS-4104 standards. Options include their award winning QuakeFlex® seismic restraints.
