Welcome to the Victorian Association of Performing Arts Centres (VAPAC) and Darebin Arts & Entertainment Centre’s (DAEC) Emergency Procedure Induction
Darebin Arts Centre is a member of VAPAC.
VAPAC has endorsed this induction as an industry standard and it has been amended for DAEC
This presentation is designed for CLIENTS, HIRERS & CONTRACTORS of DAEC.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 places the onus on employers to provide and maintain a working environment that is safe and without risks to health.
This induction CD is an important component of our Health and Safety policies
A copy of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 is available at the DAEC
You the client, hirer or contractor are expected to view this presentation, show it to all supervising staff or crew and then sign and return the attached declaration
This declaration is an important part of your hiring agreement or contract and no event or work can begin without its completion
As an important part of our Health and Safety Procedures an onsite induction with all members of your cast and crew will be required to take place BEFORE the first rehearsal / performance
This induction will take approximately 10 minutes and must be included in your daily schedule
Every hirer is expected to appoint a Company Liaison Person or Stage Manager who in an emergency situation will take a principle role in evacuating the cast and crew from the venue.
This person should make themselves familiar with the location of all fire extinguishers and emergency exits
DAEC has trained first aiders in attendance during all performances.
Should you need first aid please notify Your Supervising Technician or the Front of House Supervisor immediately.
FIRST AID KITS CAN BE FOUND IN THE TECHNICIAN OFFICE & BOX OFFICE
Please report all incidents to your Supervising Technician or Front of House Supervisor.
DAEC has an automated fire system
If a fire alarm is triggered DAEC staff will assess the situation and decide whether to evacuate the building.
In the event of emergency evacuation of the venue, this will be coordinated by the DAEC Supervising Technician (backstage) and FOH Supervisor (front of house, patrons).
You need to ensure that you listen to their instructions and follow their guidance.
If you are made aware of a potential emergency situation, it is critical that you report this IMMEDIATELY to the DAEC Supervising Technician on duty and/or FOH Supervisor.
DAEC staff will assess the situation and act accordingly – keeping in mind that we will keep you informed of progress at all times.
In the event of an emergency evacuation the designated assembly area is ‘Ray Brahman Gardens’, located at the rear of the Centre and clearly marked with a green sign (indicating an emergency assembly area). Please familiarise yourselves with this location before your event commences.
It is crucial that before and during evacuation you take instruction from the DAEC supervising staff.
All incidents in the DAEC need to be reported, recorded and investigated in the interest of improving safety.
Please report all incidents, both major and minor, to the Supervising Technician or FOH Supervisor.
