Course Summary

This PUAFER005 & PUAFER008 combined course has been designed for individuals who are required to implement an emergency response as specified in facility emergency procedures OR specified by a person at a higher level in the emergency control organisation (ECO).

Individuals who undertake this work will be working within the command, control and coordinate structure of the ECO. This includes undertaking pre-emergency planning, taking appropriate actions in an emergency and assisting with post-emergency activities.

Furthermore, it also involves the skills and knowledge required to confine small emergencies in a facility and applies to individuals who are required to have first attack firefighting skills. It includes preparing for emergency situations, identifying and assessing an emergency, safely confining emergencies, using initial response equipment and reporting on the facility’s emergency response with an engaging and practical delivery.

Small emergencies in a facility include incidents such as small fires that can be controlled using a fire extinguisher; chemical spills that can be controlled using facility personal protective clothing and equipment and a spill kit; or a vehicle accident where there is no significant injury or damage.

This course has been developed to cover a broad range of emergencies and facilities as considered in Australian Standard (AS) 3745 and AS 4083. It applies to employees in the workplace within all industries and in all contexts utilising experienced trainers with real world experience.
