Emergency Warden Identification

The requirements for clear identification of wardens is set out in the Australian Standard 'AS 3745-2010 Planning for Emergencies in Facilities'.

In the event of an emergency it is important to ensure that all members of the Emergency Control Organisation are clearly identifiable and the organisational structure is easily recognisable.

AS 3745-2010 recommends that the following colours are used to identify ECO members:

  • Chief Warden – White Hat
  • Deputy Chief Warden – White Hat
  • Communication Officer – White Hat
  • Floor Wardens – Yellow Hat
  • Area Wardens – Yellow Hat
  • Wardens – Red Hat
  • First Aid Warden - Green Hat with a White Cross

The standard specifies that wardens shall be identified by a least one of the following:

  • Helmet
  • Hat
  • Cap
  • Vest
  • Tabard

Proactive Equipment have a range of wardens caps and warden hats, as well as  warden vests and tabards available for the common positions of ECO members.

The recommended colours for ECO members, as set out in the Australian Standard, seek to standardise roles and identification and assist with a coordinated approach to Emergency Response.
