Who is Chief Warden Training for?

This course is specifically designed for the Chief Warden, Deputy Chief Warden or Emergency Coordinator, who are required to respond to any type emergency in the workplace.
These key people are responsible for:

  • Determining the emergency response procedures to be implemented
  • Overall management and control of the incident until the fire brigade arrives
  • Principal point of contact and communication with the building wardens and the fire brigade for the duration of the incident

With such crucial responsibilities, chief fire warden training requires a higher and more specialised level of training than building wardens.

We recommend that Chief Warden and Emergency Coordinator Skills training is performed in conjunction with Warden/Emergency Officer Skills training and evacuation exercises, in order to form a fully trained and competent Emergency Control Organisation (ECO). Staff should take part in chief fire and safety training skills sessions at least every 6 months.

Fully Compliant Chief Warden Training

Designed and delivered by our highly qualified specialists, the course will provide participants with the skills and knowledge they need to fulfill their role as Chief Warden or Emergency Coordinator. We have designed our chief warden training to comply with the requirements of AS 3745-2010: Planning for Emergencies in Facilities and AS 4083-2010: Planning for Emergencies – Health Care Facilities.

Training Outcomes

Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of emergency procedures, from assessing the risk that may be present in the workplace to effectively planning for all types of emergencies. Chief Wardens will take part in extensive practical exercises on managing and controlling workplace emergencies and evacuations.
