Fire Extinguisher & Warden Course in Adelaide

Emergency Warden Training

Fire Training and Safety Services offers Emergency Warden training in a structured training format at nationally accredited level, using selected units from the National Public Safety Training Package. The Public Safety Training Package is aligned to the National Competency Standard, Fire and Emergency Response (CS-FP-001-1995). The suite of courses (Units of Competency) within this Training Package allows selection of Units most suited to the individual client requirements taking into account the roles and responsibilities allocated to the emergency wardens at that location.

With the scope outlined in the Australian Standard AS3745 Planning for emergencies in facilities, and the Code of Practice Managing the Work Environment and Facilities, the designated or responsible persons (Emergency Wardens) need to be able to:

  • implement the local plan to deal with a large number of different emergency scenarios such as fire, medical, chemical emergencies,
  • safeguard other employees, clients and public, and
  • provide liaison with the responding emergency services.

This training needs to encompass the most likely types of emergencies to be experienced in the workplace, although fire is often utilised as the most significant scenario. Other planning indicated may be chemical, Bomb Threat or personal Threat issues.

We propose to deliver the following Unit of Competency, selected from the Public Safety Training Package, to manage your general site emergency requirements. For successful participants, a nationally accredited Statement of Attainment for the modules completed will be issued.
