Hazmat Training — Essential for many Workplaces

Hazardous materials, as their name suggests, are dangerous items that can cause damage and injury. Companies, therefore, need to ensure they have workers who have received the necessary hazmat safety training so they are able to deal with incidents and prevent serious problems.

The hazmat course we provide is intended for emergency response team members and also for ordinary workers who may be required to deal with an incident. It’s delivered by experienced instructors who provide both the technical knowledge and practical exercises so those workers are fully equipped for various situations. Read More

Outline of the Hazmat Safety Training Course

Our hazmat safety training course covers the following main elements:

  • an outline of relevant hazchem and dangerous goods legislation
  • being able to recognise incidents involving hazardous materials
  • identifying, assessing and handling the hazards they represent
  • assisting with the development and implementation of a plan to mitigate hazmat incidents by containing and recovering hazardous materials
  • helping to review the plan
  • following protocols and procedures for responding to incidents
  • having the ability to select, put on and test personal protective equipment
  • the establishment of hazard control and decontamination zones
  • decontamination and rescue procedures.

Participants for the course should be eighteen years old or over, have reasonable literacy, numeracy and communications skills with the ability to read and write in English. They should be suitably attired for practical exercises, wearing long trousers and full shoes, and be sufficiently clean shaven so they can wear breathing apparatus.

Outcomes of the Hazmat Response Training Course

The course covers all aspects of hazmat safety, including hazmat fire training where appropriate. For group training, we can customise the course to cover the particular needs of your company or site so it is more relevant to everyone who attends.

Those who successfully complete the course will be given a Statement of Attainment that is nationally recognised under the Australian Qualifications Framework. Depending on the course content, it may include the following national units of competency:

  • PUAFIR324 – Render Hazardous Materials Safe
  • PUAFIR306 – Identify, Detect and Monitor Hazardous Materials at an Incident
  • PUAFIR308 – Employ Personal Protection at a Hazardous Materials Incident
  • PUAFIR210 – Prevent Injury

On successful completion of the course, participants will have the skills and knowledge to be able to deal with incidents involving hazardous materials in a safe and competent manner. They’ll know how to assess all incidents, respond to them adequately using the necessary equipment and ensure everything is made safe. As a result, your site will be a much less hazardous and a safer place and you’ll fulfil your duty of care as an employer.

Incidents involving hazardous materials can have devastating consequences for your company, the people who work in it and the local community. These effects will be immediate and can also be long-term so they put the future of your business in doubt by harming its reputation as well as its ability to trade. Because of this, you can’t afford to take any risks and so having a fully trained workforce is essential for any responsible company. You can trust our registered training organisation to do it for you.
