Training Staff in the Event of a Fire Occurring in the Workplace

There is one organisation in South Australia, Australasian Fire & Safety Pty Ltd (AF&S) whose main clientele come from referrals and repeat clients. They are incredibly successful in the area of training and have been in business since 1992. Part of the reason for AF&S continuing success is a desire to provide fantastic service to their clients.

The main services currently provided are practical and theoretical training in Fire Safety, Emergency Procedures, Safe Work in Confined Spaces and Use of Breathing Apparatus. AF&S offer an Emergency Warden Training Course which is composed of:

  • Responding to emergency reports, signals and warnings.
  • Initiate and control initial emergency response.
  • Anticipate the further development of emergencies.
  • Assist with post initial response.

Upon satisfactory completion of this unit, the participant will be able to:

  • Identify and take appropriate action to emergency reports, signals and warnings.
  • Assess emergency situations and possible further development and take appropriate action in accordance with workplace procedures.
  • Ensure arrangements are made for people who may require assistance.
  • Attend emergency situations and operate according to workplace emergency procedures.
  • Identify and wear suitable identification according to workplace emergency procedure and relevant standards.
  • Initiate and carry out initial emergency response according to workplace emergency procedures or authorized instruction.
  • Carry out check of evacuated places in accordance with workplace emergency procedures.
  • Report results of evacuation to relevant person.
  • Implement the emergency management strategy based on evaluation of the present scenario and possible further development.
  • Ensure evacuation or alternative actions are complete before any post initial response activities are undertaken and these are under the control of the relevant person.                     

Don’t get caught out with non-compliance of OHS&W Regulations. Get in touch with a Registered Training Organisation at your earliest opportunity and let them train you and your workforce to the relevant standards, a much more cost effective exercise than you may perhaps think.

I have used AF&S to arrange both onsite and offsite training. They have been a pleasure to deal with administratively and we have received positive feedback from staff regarding the training provided.

Steve and his team are always a reliable source of information and AF&S is our preferred fire and safety training provider. Having conducted training for our student leadership team for the past few years I would highly recommend them. They are willing to go beyond usual training requirements, and tailor their services to our unique needs.

The Australasian Fire & Safety team has provided training to our organisation for many years. The training sessions are perfect overviews of the necessary detail required for our business needs. The sessions are extremely well structured, planned and focused with the instructor also managing to enlighten us with some humour which made the session interesting and understandable. I definitely feel confident in offering their service to clients.

We have used Australasian Fire & Safety as our provider for fire warden training over the last 4 years. They have provided excellent training presenters, facilities and course content. Steve and his staff provide a great service and we will continue work with them for all our future needs would recommend them to anyone needing fire & safety training.

Australasian Fire & Safety are a very professional company and I have nothing but good things to say about them. All the staff are helpful and pleasant to deal with and always respond to queries in a very timely manner. I would recommend Australasian Fire & Safety to anyone looking to complete their training.

This was a VERY informational course which I would HIGHLY recommend to others, for home or work use

“Australasian Fire & Safety provide fire training for our new shift managers. They are very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. The sessions are well structured, informative, practical and engaging”

It was a different type of learning with the trainer. He was informative, engaging, fun and patient with trainees. The best training ever.

Informative, entertaining and well-run course. Professionally presented adult learning, with enough humour to engage participants in the very important but reasonably dry subject matter. Steve is very knowledgeable and maintains enthusiasm throughout the day. I will wear the red hat with confidence (though hopefully I never need to!).
