Safety and emergency information

The EEC has an emergency evacuation procedure developed in accordance with Western Australian Occupational Safety and Health Regulations and relevant Australian standards.

Supervising staff are required to bring a list of all visiting students and staff in case a roll call is necessary in an emergency situation.

In the unlikely event of an emergency which requires the evacuation of the building, an alarm tone will sound, and EEC staff will take over and give instructions to supervising staff. Staff are asked to follow all instructions given by EEC staff or appointed wardens. On evacuation, groups will be directed to the initial assembly area which is located on the lawn area at the front of the building, unless otherwise instructed by the wardens.
