As a team you will be required to develop risk mitigation strategies to prevent work site incidents and practically test a range of possible rescue scenarios.

  • Identify hazards and risks associated with the work activities
  • Identify gaps in standard operating procedure from a rescue perspective
  • Recommend appropriate control measures to mitigate risks
  • Adapt rescue techniques using a range of available response equipment
  • Respond to a range of dynamic incidents
  • Work in a team to plan and enact an appropriate emergency response based on a given scenario
