FIRE TRAINING

Usually, these areas involve a cocktail of mixed industries, which can have devastating effects on not only property but life.

 

Rescue1 provides training in the following areas:

  • Chief Warden/Warden training for Emergency Control Organisation (ECO)

Many industries seem to get overlooked in possessing risk factors, with the attitude of “this won’t happen to us”.

Your Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) and Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) teamed within your Industrial company should be on high alert. This team will need to respond with swift and accurate action to emergencies on site. Given Industrial Environments could have the potential to turn from a small incident into an exploding fire disaster, the importance of discussing and setting-up some pre-plan actions is a vital implementation into your Emergency Response Plan and ECO/EPC group.

Within the Industrial precincts, there are many areas of risks to safeguard against:

Neighbours
Knowing the businesses day to day operations, what types of chemicals are used or stored on site and rough quantities.

Accessibility
If there is a problem on your site or your neighbours' site, are you protected, can you evacuate safely?

Associated Risks
Traffic to the area, materials delivered to the site, hazards on deliveries.

Weather Impacting
Weather conditions can play a role in risks on site or evacuation of the site.

ECO Team Searches
These searches have hidden and additional risks as opposed to standard corporate layouts.

Structural Integrity
Most factory environments pose bigger structural risks and integrity challenges.

ECO Teams may be required to assist with such duties as:

  • First Aid

  • Gate Warden duties

  • Adjoining building problems on your site

  • Storm Alerts

  • Chemical Alerts, Decontamination and other related incidents

  • Heavy vehicle to light vehicle collisions on site

  • RECEO - for all incidents

  • Part loaded vehicles form other sites with unknown material on board

  • Emergency Equipment protection and maintenance

Within and around your site you can see there are many risk factors involved. Don’t change the next risk or emergency thinking it won’t happen to you.

Plan for it now, and be ready!

FIRE TRAINING

CORPORATE

 

Corporate Fire Training can be in for various area unlike industrial areas like; offices (multi rise), schools shopping centres and the like. These areas area subjected to multiple challenges - do you, your staff and contractors, know how to react in an emergency in a timely fashion?

Your Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) and Emergency Planning Committee (EPC) team within your office environment play an integral role in maintaining important information for the safety of your building.

 

Office environments can vary to Industrial environments, because of a number of factors:

Location
Normally situated in low rise or high-risk environments, heavy pedestrian areas.

Multiple Exits or minimal 
People would normally choose the way they came in to exit from, because of familiarity.

Environment
Would contain multiple areas of high volume office furniture, computers, photocopy rooms and many smaller individual office areas.

Storage Areas
Usually a lot of paper, computers, cleaning and other such chemicals.

Internal Environment
False ceiling spaces, plenty of void areas, false walls.

Human Factor
High risk, mood-driven errors, behavioural changes all leading too clouded decisions.

 

There are many more significant risk factors that make up the Corporate Environment, this is the reason why you need to have you Emergency Response Wardens trained and ready for anything.

  • First Aid Calls

  • Civil Disturbance

  • Adjoining building issues

  • Storm Alert

  • Lock Down

  • Electrical and Gas Incidents
