This nationally accredited and AS3745-2010 compliant training course utilises a combination of theory and practical work to prepare participants for dealing with small workplace emergencies. Small workplace emergencies may include such incidents as a small fire that can be controlled using a nearby fire extinguisher; or a chemical spill that can be controlled using workplace personal protective clothing and equipment, and a small spill kit; or a workplace vehicle accident where there is no significant injury or damage. This unit places responsibility on individual employees in the workplace to identify, assess and safely confine workplace emergency situations. This requirement is consistent with the legislative obligations of employees as prescribed in OHS legislation. The unit may also be used for planning for future operations in the workplace. First Aid Training Group uses a live gas fire prop, real extinguishers and fire blankets for all participants to ensure that they have a fully immersive experience. Use of live fire is subject to Country Fire Authority permit conditions during designated fire danger periods and a substitute assessment process may be used.
