Course Information

This course covers the skills and knowledge required to work within the command, control and coordination structure of an Emergency Control Organisation (ECO). An ECO’s priority is the safety of facility occupants and visitors during an emergency which means ECO members are responsible for pre-emergency, emergency and post emergency actions.

The unit of competency has been developed to cover the facilities as specified in Australian Standard (AS) 3745 and AS4083. For this unit, as covered by AS3745 and/or 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).

All aspects of the unit must be undertaken in accordance with legislative requirements, organisational policies and procedures and accepted safe practices. This course is ideal for members of an Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) who are floor or area wardens and/or wardens or deputy wardens within their community or workplace. Selecting an appropriate number of wardens and conducting regular warden training aids in ensuring personnel are ready to deal with any workplace emergencies.

The knowledge and skills gained through successful completion of this course may be applied by employees across a variety of industries. Please review the back page of this course information flyer for further details about the course and entry requirements.
