Australian Standards 3745 and 4083 stipulate that businesses and facilities must establish an emergency control organisation, prepare, maintain and implement an emergency plan, develop and test emergency procedures and conduct training to respond to fires and other emergencies. To comply with these Standards, businesses and facilities must also ensure that all resources are regularly serviced, tested and maintained. In addition to our fire safety training and emergency management courses, Aurata Safety provides customised consulting services so can work with individual clients on preparing an emergency management plan tailored to their specific industry, operations and working environments.
Recognised and Non-Recognised Fire Safety and Emergency Response Training
In order to comply with WHS Regulations, it is not necessary to undertake nationally recognised fire safety and emergency response training courses. Nationally recognised courses tend to be more costly than non-recognised courses, can be more rigid with regard to content and some organisations find them too broad in scope to meet their specific needs. Aurata Safety offers both nationally recognised and non-recognised fire safety and emergency response training courses across Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Australia-wide. Courses encompass fire safety, such as fire extinguisher training, Chief and Fire Warden training, as well as general emergency incident management and communications training. In addition to being cost effective and more focused than recognised courses, non-recognised fire safety training and emergency response courses can be tailored specifically to an organisation’s operations and environment whilst still enabling them to achieve regulatory compliance.
Refresher Courses, Evacuation Drills and Fire Safety Equipment
Australian Standards recommend fire safety and emergency response skills retention activities be undertaken every twelve months for Fire Warden and Chief training and every two years for fire extinguisher training. Aurata Safety offers a range of refresher courses and can work with our clients to design, prepare and conduct evacuation exercises and drills which, must be conducted at least every twelve months. We offer complete emergency equipment sales, testing, maintenance and specific equipment training services which encompass fire protection equipment, first aid kits, AEDs, spill kits and emergency eye wash stations and showers. Possessing and regularly servicing emergency response equipment is an essential component of meeting regulatory requirements.
