This Program examines the requirements for Joint Health and Safety Committees in recently proclaimed Safety & Health at Work Act 2005-12 (SHAW 2005-12). Much emphasis will be placed on equipping businesses to achieve and maintain effective safety committees whose members will execute the safety and health mandates of the organisation.

Safety committee members within the scope of their duties must understand the requirements for fire safety including the complexity of workplace fires and the importance of fire prevention. The Safety and Health at Work in Sections 32 - 42 make various stipulations in relation to fire warnings, training and prevention measures. When one understands the components of a fire, and the importance of prevention, effective workplace fire safety plans can be orchestrated, communicated and practised.

The program will contain a practical session where trainees will gain the hands on experience needed to effectively extinguish fires. Interactive presentations, practical sessions and topic specific resources will be utilised to ensure that learning objectives are met.
