Who needs Fire Safety Training?
All building owners, Property Managers and employers have an ethical and legal obligation to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all occupants and employees whilst at a place of work, at which the employers undertaking is conducted. Arrangements must be made for the safe and rapid evacuation of occupants and employees from the place of work in the event of an emergency.
Core Fire Safety and Training Topics
Chief Warden Training
The Chief Warden is the overall coordinator in the event of an emergency incident. This training is designed to provide the participants with the skill, knowledge and experience to perform the duties of a Chief Warden. These skills include the investigation of an alarm or report of an emergency, the coordination of an evacuation when required, and practical instruction in the use of the installed Emergency Warning Systems.
EWIS and EWS Training
Installed occupant warning systems are an invaluable tool and safety system in the event of an evacuation being required. All designated Chief Wardens must have a thorough understanding of the use and practical applications of these systems. Our trainers and consultants can provide practical instruction and demonstration in the use of the EWIS and EWS panels and their functions, how to best utilise these panels to effectively manage and coordinate an emergency response.
Wardens make up the largest portion of the Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) within a building. These are the individuals that are responsible for the safety of the occupants on their individual floors and/or within their individual areas. This training prepares Wardens to handle a wide range of potential emergency situations. The training focuses on the correct actions to be taken to ensure a safe and efficient response to an emergency, until stood down by the Chief Warden or the attending emergency services.
Hypothetical scenarios are developed and put to the members of the ECO. The participants are then required to role play through the given emergency situation to achieve a satisfactory outcome. These scenarios can be geared towards any number of potential threat or emergency situations. They reinforce knowledge gained by the ECO and enable the ECO members to gain confidence in their roles.
The size and configuration of the premises, together with the type of occupancy, will determine the time interval between practice evacuations. Practice evacuations may be conducted either as a partial or total evacuation of a building, structure or workplace. In accordance with AS 3745-2010, all areas of a building, structure or workplace shall participate in at least one exercise in each 12 month period.
All occupants of the floor/s or area/s involved in an evacuation exercise shall take part, unless the EPC grants an exemption prior to conducting the exercise.
All evacuation exercises are to be attended by an observer with a checklist. Our trainers and consultants will coordinate the planning and execution of these exercises, to evaluate the effectiveness of the procedures in place and the competency and skills of the ECO.
Briefing and Debriefing
Prior to the commencement of an exercise all members of the ECO are briefed on what to expect and what is expected of them concerning the exercise. On completion of an exercise, all ECO members are debriefed to identify any positive or negative facets of the ECO or the procedures for the building.
During the debriefing session the trainer/consultants check list is analysed, and any deficiencies are to be reported to the EPC so that the appropriate amendments can be made to the procedures or the ECO.
Sites that have Retail stores attached can have a Retail Visitation included in their training programme to take place biannually. Retailers are visited by one of our trainers/consultants, where procedures to follow in the event of an emergency are explained to them. Retailers can also be provided with a laminated version of their procedures for display within their premises on request.
