As per the Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 and AS3745-2010, Queensland businesses must meet numerous mandatory requirements pertaining to workplace fire safety training. Specifically, Queensland law requires businesses to prepare employees for using fire safety equipment and implementing emergency evacuation plans. At 1st Choice Fire Safety and Training, we offer several Brisbane fire safety training opportunities, all designed to keep your business safe and help you stay compliant.
Our Brisbane Fire Training Courses
1st Choice Fire Safety and Training has two main types of fire safety training in Brisbane. Our training offerings include;
First Response Training
Evacuation Coordinator Training.
First Response Training: Queensland law requires select staff members in your business to have training as ‘first responders’ for emergency fire situations. This training module is designed to give staff members the training they need to be effective first responders, including education on identifying the best equipment and procedures to use in the case of fire. Through a combination of theoretical and practical instruction sessions, this type of training gives your employees the knowledge and skills they will need to react to an emergency fire scenario. How does fire spread? How can you distinguish between different classes of fire? When is it right to try extinguishing the fire, versus launching an evacuation. First Response Training will answer all these questions and more.
Evacuation Coordinator Training: This training module is intended for individuals who have been appointed as members of an ECO (emergency control organisation). These ECO wardens, as they are called, are responsible for the control of the premises during an emergency. ECO wardens are given responsibilities in the workplace emergency response plan. Evacuation Coordinator Training provides the knowledge and skills necessary to complete these responsibilities, to respond during an alarm, to communicate with other employees, and to lead the evacuation process.
Engaging in these types of fire training in Brisbane is a must for compliance, but it‘s even more important for the safety of your business. As a business owner, you must provide a safe workplace environment for your employees. Making sure that some of those employees know how to react during a fire is a crucial part of this commitment. Personnel trained in emergency fire response can save lives, minimise property damage and act as beacons of calm and clarity in instances that tend to breed chaos and fear. At 1st Choice Fire Safety and Training, we are adept at giving your employees the tools they need to defend your workplace from fires and other emergency threats.
