Emergency buddy register

Emergency buddy register

Set up a register

Some of your staff or tenants living in your building who have disability or who are less mobile may need help to evacuate in an emergency.

Invite your staff or residents to register with your organisation or building management if they will need help in an emergency.

The register should be voluntary and kept confidential at all times to ensure privacy and personal information laws are not breached.

Notify emergency services

If you do set up and maintain a register of staff or residents who may need help during an evacuation, you should contact relevant emergency services organisations to let them know.

The information should be locked away in a place where emergency services staff can access it quickly. Let the relevant emergency services know where they can find the list.
