Emergency Response Teams Training Tasmania


ERT training is aimed at high risk industries that need to maintain employee safety, protect plant, equipment and respond to incidents that occur on site.

Industries such as the mining and manufacturing sectors use emergency response teams as an effective response to emergency incidents. Onsite teams are trained to respond to incidents that threaten both human and physical resources. Crews are trained to enable them to work alongside responding Tasmania Fire Service Brigades.

The TasFire Training Code of Practice can be found on our website at Here


Emergency Response Team training encapsulates a range of competencies and is delivered in a needs based format depending on the types of industrial risks involved. The training includes;

Hazardous material incidents
First response to fire incidents
Fire control and emergency rescue
Operating breathing apparatus and firefighting pumps

Participants will be trained to work as a team during supervised practical exercises at our training grounds. Our instructors have many years experience within the firefighting industry and participant safety is paramount.

Duration, cost and location are all by negotiation according to workplace special needs


Please contact our regional consultants to discuss your needs. We will design a course based on your specific industry workplace risks and requirements.

In addition, we require all course participants who are feeling unwell to not attend the scheduled course and we will be asking that participants declare that as far as possible that they are of good health. Our standard cancellation policy will be relaxed during this period in the interests of maintaining health and safety to cater for any participant health concerns.

We will contact all clients who have been subject to COVID19 cancellations to offer a course place. Our course schedule is now online, and we are taking bookings for those dates via the website or through direct contact.

Thank you for your patience during this time.
