The Establishment-Based Contact has a key role in the Emergency Procedure. It is their role to ensure that:
- Information regarding a visit is kept in a secure but accessible location
- If a visit is returning out-with normal hours, or involves an overnight, that visit information is readily accessible
- They know who to contact if an accident or incident is of a serious nature
- They are available 24/7 throughout the duration of the visit
The nature, duration and type of visit will determine the most appropriate Establishment-Based Contact. For visits of a longer duration or those involving higher risk activities it is recommended that more than one Establishment-Based Contact is provided.
