PUAFER001 - Identify, prevent and report potential facility emergency situations

This course applies to a broad range of emergencies and covers the work required before emergency services and/or specialist response team arrives (not including the specific use of equipment to prevent facility emergency situations).

It will provide the skills, knowledge, and most importantly the confidence needed by occupants who are required to be ‘emergency aware’ in their facility, allowing them to identify and where possible prevent the development of facility emergency situations. Participants will also learn how to minimise the consequences of an emergency and how to report if emergency protection systems and/or equipment is compromised.

Specifically, this will include communicating with team members and stakeholders, identifying and reporting situations in a facility that reduce the effectiveness of emergency protection systems and equipment, identifying emergency protection systems and equipment present in a facility and identifying, monitoring and reporting situations that could lead to emergencies in a facility.

All aspects of this course are undertaken in accordance with legislative requirements, organisational policies and procedures and approved safe practices. Facilities are those as specified in Australian Standard 3745 and AS 4083 and are a building, structure or workplace that is, or may be, occupied by people (occupants).
