Emergency and Disaster Management Planning

Get compliant with the new Emergency & Disaster Management Practice Standard - fast.

Many providers are stressing about the impact of the new Emergency and Disaster Management Standard that comes into effect on January 24th, 2022.

This workshop has been developed to help busy providers minimise the paperwork for the new requirements and identify the actions you need to take to comply. This half-day workshop will:

  • Provide an overview of the new Emergency and Disaster Management Standard including links to other relevant standards

  • Support providers to work through a DSC Gap Analysis Tool to assess how your organisation currently meets the new Practice Standard

  • Highlight examples and potential responses to support providers with each quality indicator

  • Stimulate and share ideas for effective disaster and emergency management planning and response in the disability services sector.

This is a roll up your sleeves and get down to business kind of workshop - attendees will get the most out of it if they come prepared to work.

Workshop attendees can expect to leave the workshop with a complete (or partially complete) Gap Analysis and a plan to address outstanding compliance areas as well as take away template for emergency and support planning.


Rob Woolley

Our very own Woolly Mammoth, pulls up last in the alphabetical rankings but always gets a place on the DSC podium for combining curiosity with smarts. He knows so much about the NDIS it is scary. Rob lives a personal commitment to sharing his knowledge with an endgame of people with disability in control. Combining lived experience of the early childhood intervention pathway with professional experience of the realities of provider life - he has consistently shown the inability to hold down a real job. His roles in the disability sector have covered direct support work, project management, business development, consulting, ILC-funded advocacy roles and owner-operator of a registered and then unregistered provider (but the thing he is best at is being a very present dad). If you want a consultant or trainer in your corner you will be looking high and low to do better than our Rob.

Paula Spencer

Paula has extensive experience developing risk and WHS tools and management systems. Her expertise include researching and writing policies, frameworks, procedures, and training material that is tailored to an organisation’s size, scope and culture. Paula knows her way around a risk matrix, is passionate about helping organisations understand their risk appetite and embedding robust risk frameworks in the heart of the organisation. Prior to joining DSC, Paula worked in the disability sector for 8 years as a Risk and Compliance Manager. Paula is fast becoming a highly valued member of the quality team. Paula loves to garden, cook and spring clean. Just as well, she’s going to need to clear some wall space – she is currently completing a Graduate Diploma in Governance and Risk Management and clocking up a country show ribbon count for eggs from her rare chickens.
