ECO training delivered in-person or online
First 5 Minutes delivers professional training for all levels of the Emergency Control Organisation (ECO), providing your team with competency and confidence to undertake the duties set out in your Emergency Management Plan.
In-Depth Emergency Procedure Training
Ensure your Chief Wardens and Wardens are prepared to take command and coordinate all aspects of an emergency. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of emergency procedures, from identifying a threat to effectively planning for all types of emergencies.
Training That Meets Compliance
Under the Australian Standard AS 3745-2010: Planning for emergencies in facilities, an Emergency Control Organisation (ECO) must be established to facilitate the safe and orderly implementation of the emergency response procedures, including the evacuation of the occupants from the building.
All Roles Covered
The ECO is a structured group of employees in key roles, as deemed necessary by the Emergency Planning Committee (EPC), to implement the Emergency Management Plan. Our training covers the required knowledge of each role including:
- Chief Warden, Deputy Chief Warden and Emergency Coordinator
- Communication Officer
- Floor/Area Wardens
- Wardens/Emergency Officers
We have designed our ECO training to comply with the requirements of AS 3745-2010. Delivered by our highly qualified specialists, our ECO training covers how to implement and coordinate the established Emergency Response Procedures, including:
- Identifying and reporting potential emergencies
- Evaluating the need to evacuate an area
- Preparing for an evacuation
- Assisting people in accordance with their Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP)
Self Paced Online Training
SPOT is our Self Paced Online Training platform that allows users to access their ECO Training at any time. The portal has been built to capture user activity for reporting and compliance purposes. A certificate is issued upon course completion.
Live Web-Based Training
Our consultants can broadcast training live via Zoom or Teams, providing the same interactive learning experience as our traditional in-person events. Training can be completed anywhere, negating the need to have everyone in the one place at the same time.
