ERGT Australia’s Control Minor Incidents (CMI) course is designed for individuals to enable them to undertake initial response to potential dangerous incidents involving small fires and minor spills in the workplace. The course covers skills and knowledge beyond what is typically covered in an induction program, but does not require specialist training, such that is undertaken by incident response team members.
The individuals attending the course will vary in experience.
The expected learning outcomes for this Nationally Recognised Training unit MSMWHS205 Control minor incidents are:
- recognise an incident
- evaluate the incident and select an appropriate response
- check equipment and apply correct follow-up procedures
