The course PUAWER008B Confine small workplace emergencies covers the competencies required to confine small workplace emergencies. Small workplace emergencies may include such incidents as a small fire that can be controlled using a nearby fire extinguisher.
These units have been developed to cover the broad range of emergencies and workplaces as considered in Australian Standard 3745 -2010.
The course is designed to provide participants with the required knowledge and skills to:
prepare for emergency situations
identify and assess the emergency
safely contain small workplace emergencies where possible
use initial response equipment on small un-established workplace fires and
report those workplace emergencies.
The course will include participants demonstrating extinguisher use in a simulated workplace emergency situation and demonstration of a fire blanket.
Assessment will confirm the ability to correctly identify the type of emergency that has occurred; to identify and take action to avoid or control any associated hazards; to use initial response equipment and techniques to safely and effectively control or contain the emergency.
