If you work in high-risk bushfire area, it’s well worth your time to look at CFA’s Bushfire Safety for Workers online training module.
This online course will help people stay safe and is a must for businesses that send staff out on the road to bushfire prone areas. It includes critical, life-saving information about what to do if you’re caught on the road or at a customer’s property in a bushfire. It explains bushfire behaviour and how to recognise your risk.
The interactive and engaging content is designed to really get you thinking, and can be accessed by anyone at any time.
So far more than 3300 people have done this training, and almost all said they understood how to apply the information they’d learned to their role and felt confident about applying it.
Many of the participants have commented that the course is easy to use and understand.
“It kept me engaged the whole time and taught me stuff I didn’t know,” said one person. “When I got something wrong it explained the correct answer. Whoever designed it deserves acknowledgement. It’s the best online training of its type I’ve had.”
“I now feel prepared thanks to the content and overall design of the training. This is a fantastic initiative,” said another.
The session takes at least 45 minutes. A certificate can be downloaded and printed at the end as proof of completion. To get started go to the CFA website. One hour of your time could save your life or the life of your employees.
