This unit provides additional knowledge and practice for participants including leadership, use of fire panels and EWIS systems, legislation and planning for evacuation exercises. Participants will develop skills to ascertain the extent of onsite workplace emergencies and supervise evacuation of the workplace.
Particular attention will be placed on meeting the requirements of Australian Standard 3745–2010: Planning for emergencies in facilities and how it applies to all workplaces. Participants will have an understanding of emergency procedures and will undergo extensive practical drills on controlling workplace emergencies.
Upon completion each participant will receive a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment.
