First Response Fire Training

First Response Fire Training is mandatory in Queensland for business owners and occupants of a building to ensure the safety for all persons in the building. The Queensland Building Fire Safety Regulation 2008 requires first response be given to staff within one month of a person commencing work in the building and be repeated every two years. Evacuation training is to be provided within two days of commencing.

In reality this is no different in the other states and Territories however this is specifically defined in legislation. Therefore, it is important for your business to meet all fire safety requirements.

This is one of the courses from our suite of health and safety courses we have on offer being delivered by one of our safety consultants. Training is a key element of the businesses safety management system.
