Australian Standard AS 4083 sets out the procedures for health care facilities in the planning for, and responses to, internal and external emergencies. It also specifies response colour codes for use in a specific emergency.

This Standard is based on Australian Standard AS 3745, Emergency control organization and procedures for buildings, structures and workplaces, but deals specifically with emergencies in health care facilities that are usually attended, in the first instance, by the employees of the healthcare facility.
