PUAWER008B Confine Small Workplace Emergencies

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.

Health & Safety for Everyone.
