Safety Policies

Critical Incident

Catholic Theological College is committed to preventing critical incidents where possible, preparing for them carefully, and responding to them effectively, compassionately and with the safety and welfare of all concerned being of priority. The College endeavours to minimise trauma and distress to students and staff, and damage to property, and to ensure the return of the site to normal operations as soon as possible.

Emergency Management

Emergency management procedures are included in the unit outline for each class. Throughout the College you will see emergency posters as follows:
  • list of emergency management (EM) personnel, including fire wardens and first aid officers; 
  • the emergency plan for where you currently are in the building; and 
  • standard fire orders
In a case of an emergency, follow the directions given by EM personnel, who will be wearing fluorescent vests and caps. See Campus Maps for assembly areas.
