Emergency policies

Our approach to Emergency Management

We use a systematic approach to the management of incidents or issues that seriously affect or may affect the University's people, operations or reputation. Where possible, this approach uses existing infrastructure and procedures.

We have developed this approach to meet our legal requirements, standards of good governance and, importantly, to minimise the risk to its staff, students, partners and communities.

Our approach brings together four elements:

  • Emergency response (making people safe and minimising damage to assets)
  • Emergency management (coordinating the emergency response and managing the recovery)
  • Critical Incident management (addressing strategic business and reputation issues)
  • Business continuity (maintaining business operations)
