Under Australian laws, employers and other responsible persons at workplaces are required to have emergency evacuation procedures in place. What would you do if a fire started at your workplace, a co-worker needed urgent medical attention, or a bomb threat was received? Would you know what procedures to follow?
Our online Area Warden Awareness course gives participants an understanding of the duties of a Warden (including Chief and Area Wardens), evacuations, search procedures, key emergency roles and responsibilities, and what to do when threatened with a bomb are a few of the topics covered in this course, which no employer or organisation should miss.
