MSMWHS212

Undertake first response to fire incidents

Australian Skills Group

Why Choose This Course

The MSMWHS212 This unit is designed to ensure that an appropriate first response to fire incidents in onshore and offshore situations/emergencies is achieved.  This competency applies to students who are required to respond to fires in the workplace (other than evacuating to the assembly point).

It covers the first response (only) to fire, and does not include aggressive fire fighting. Typically this response would be undertaken to contain/extinguish a minor fire or to contain a more major fire while external help arrived.
