If you are members of an Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) or a person required to manage problems and resolve issues in relation to the organisation’s facility emergency prevention process and emergency control structures, then this course set is a must for you.
It covers the skills and knowledge required to achieve the following:
- manage and monitor facility emergency prevention and control structures for a complex facility or a defined group of facilities such as a building, structure or workplace, as specified in Australian Standard (AS) 3745 and AS 4083,
- for members of an EPC to document and maintain a facility emergency plan,
- for members of an EPC to establish and maintain an Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) and to operate in accordance with the facility's emergency plan.
The role of the ECO is critical. Comprised of Chief Wardens, Deputy Chief Wardens, Area/Floor Wardens, Communications Officer, First Aid personnel, the ECO is responsible for the safety of facility occupants and visitors during an emergency. This means ECO members are responsible for pre-emergency, emergency, and post-emergency actions. Careful planning, training and initiation must take place for this to happen safely and effectively and must be implemented by the Emergency Planning Committee.
Participants in this course set will learn how to effectively:
- Initiate emergency response planning,
- Establish and maintain an ECO,
- Initiate and control the initial emergency response,
- Provide support in the post response and/or recovery phase,
- Plan and implement ECO training,
- Manage emergency measures, plans, procedures and practices, ensuring compliance and effectiveness
- Apply Work, Health and Safety (WHS)/Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) requirements, including identifying hazards and controlling risks
- Manage emergency control equipment
- Monitor emergency control structures and verify results
- Record and report emergency control equipment and faults and provide suggestions for correction
- Provide advice and guidance to other EPC and ECO members
All aspects of this course will be undertaken in accordance with legislative requirements, organisational policies and procedures and accepted safe practices. The course has been developed to cover occupants and facilities as specified in Australian Standard (AS) 3745 and AS4083. Occupants are people attending a facility on a permanent or temporary basis such as an employee, contractor, student or resident, but not a visitor or patient and a facility is a building, structure or workplace that is, or may be, occupied by people (occupants).
