PUAFER008 Confine Small Workplace Emergencies

The course PUAFER008 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 emergencies 
  • use initial response equipment
  • report facility emergency response

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.

The Training Package for this training requires participants to be physically able to undertake risk management as well as the ability to retrieve, use and re-stow initial response equipment.

Clothing: We suggest that you wear comfortable casual clothing and long pants. Enclosed, flat shoes should also be worn.

Healthcorp’s course PUAFER008 Confine small workplace emergencies is approx. 2 hours in duration. Participants are required to wear appropriate clothing and closed-in footwear.

Competency based training methods will be assessed through a combination of practical activities, written theoretical questions, observation reports and/or workplace simulation activities.

A Statement of Attainment will be issued to successful participants.

Refresher training is recommended to be conducted annually.
Once enrolled, Healthcorp will email students a booking confirmation with course requirements and terms of enrollment.
