Are you prepared for the unexpected? As the manager or owner of your business property, you need to know how to fight diverse threats. While you undoubtedly use security alarms, secure IT networks and other systems to protect your business assets and data from human perils, natural hazards are just as capable of destroying the things you’ve worked so hard to build. Our fire safety training courses help you keep your facilities running safely so that you can focus on operating a business.
Fire Safety Training
We believe that preparedness is just as important as how you respond to an emergency. The CMG Fire and Safety Services training program encompasses a number of subjects and are both practical and theory based.
We provide both non-accredited and nationally accredited fire safety training courses in partnership with a registered RTO No.40599.
Each of these training regimens touches upon unique subject matter. We strive to help organisations become competent in fire safety practices and adhere to regulatory guidelines, so we tailor our course content to the needs of your workforce. For instance, if your business operates special equipment that might pose a particular hazard, we’ll help you adapt your safety procedure to ensure it addresses every possible contingency.
Where Do Sound Fire Safety Training Theories Originate?
Australian Standard AS3745-2010 is a critical source of information for organisations that want to implement effective fire emergency procedures. This document covers emergency response actions, proper emergency planning and building-specific safety allowances, so it’s essential for organisations that want to ensure their emergency response plans are legally compliant.
Australian Standard AS3745-2010 also stipulates that emergency plans consider details like the number of occupants in your building and the size of your facility, making it a good guideline on how to address the duty of care provisions found in common law. Remember, fire safety isn’t just about preventing injury or property harm; a good emergency plan can also help you avoid litigation that might arise if someone gets hurt on your premises.
The emergency plan shall include, but not limited to, the following:
- Emergency prevention;
- Emergency preparedness;
- Emergency mitigation;
- Activities for preparing for and prevention of emergencies, such as training, communication and maintenance;
- Overall control and coordination arrangements for emergency response; and
- The agreed roles and responsibilities of the emergency control organisation and occupants of the facility in preparation for, during and after an emergency.
Bridging the Gap Between Theory and Implementation
Our goal is to help businesses master fire safety by coming to terms with their specific responsibilities. We understand that no two companies or facilities are alike. Instead of trying to make you fit into a mould, we assess your organisation and build a suitable program around the way you currently operate. By harmonising your operating standards with the appropriate OH&S legislative and Australian Standard, we make it easier to achieve lasting safety improvements.
Devising a Concrete Plan
Australian Standard AS3745-2010 mandates that all workplaces and activity centres create and maintain Evacuation Diagrams. These plans help your patrons and employees find safe paths to the nearest exits in case of a fire. While you have some leeway about their colour, material, style and other cosmetic details, it’s important that your Evacuation Diagrams adhere to both the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 1996 and Australian Standard AS3745-2010.
CMG Fire and Safety Services can help you deal with responsibilities and duties of your staff in case of a emergency. It doesn’t matter whether your employees need a complete refresher on how to stop a sudden fire or you’re trying to implement a new evacuation plan after completing building modifications. CMG is always ready to help you maintain a higher state of readiness.
