PUAFER008 – Confine Small Emergencies in a Facility (Fire Extinguisher Use)

Fire Extinguisher Use Course Overview

Confine Small Emergencies in a Facility trains participants in the safe use of fire extinguishers, fire hose reels and fire blankets. This unit of competency involves the skills and knowledge required to confine small emergencies in a facility and it applies to occupants 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. 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. The unit 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 line with legislative requirements, organisational policies and procedures, and accepted safe work practices. No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication. Upon successful completion of this course candidates will be issued with a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment for the Unit/s of Competency.
