Victoria's Emergency Management Reform

Presentation by: Tony Murphy, Director of Capability and Response, Emergency Management Victoria

Presentation package now available (members only)

Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) was launched on 1 July as a single authority to coordinate all State emergency services’ response to emergencies and disasters. It is the first of its kind in Australia and represents a step change in emergency management by the State.
Tony Murphy, Director of Capability and Response, Emergency Management Victoria, presented to Central Safety Group on August 12, 2014, and spoke about the creation of this new authority in the wake of emergencies, such as Black Saturday. Reports highlighted shortfalls in integration between the emergency service agencies and so EMV was created to address this.
Tony outlined the agency’s brief, which includes reaching out and working in conjunction with communities and business as well as Government as a whole, not just agencies involved with emergency services.
Tony also explained the newly-established control arrangements for response to Class 1 emergencies, as well as the incident management structure.
As a result of this integration, the approach to health and safety requires an overhaul. It is a key agenda item for EMV and is being led from the top. Tony said there was recognition of the importance of aligning operational standards and procedures and having a joined-up, consistent approach to health and safety across the different emergency service agencies.

OHS and Social Sustainability
As the concept of social sustainability becomes more important, businesses and organisations are treating people more as an asset to be valued and looked after.
How can OHS practitioners support their businesses in building and maintaining social sustainability? Phil Lovelock has some answers when he presents a model for doing this in a CSG lunchtime Zoom talk on 9th August.
He will outline a 5-point action plan with elements that reflect the growth and maturity of OHS as a profession. It will cover people, workplace environment, systems, the organisation and external stakeholders.
It is a new, broader approach to the OHS role that will be useful for anyone facing this challenge.
