We are a Registered Training Organisation (RTO:22250) and hold independently audited ISO9001-2008 Quality Management Certification
Fire and Safety Australia (FSA) has been operating as a provider of emergency response services and emergency response training to the Oil & Gas and Mining Industries throughout Australasia since 2007. During this time we have grown to a company with a national presence and over 90+ professional team members directly employed. We have an excellent reputation for emergency response sub-contract delivery, safety performance (no Lost Time Injuries in our company history), recruiting and selecting the right emergency response team members, and offering value added services to our clients.
We are a specialised provider of outsourced emergency response personnel and we seek to partner with our clients for long term results to achieve a shared emergency response vision. Our company has held ISO9001-2008 Quality Accreditation for the supply and management of Emergency Services Officers for more than 4 years.
Our offering to the industry is unique in that in addition to offering professional and highly qualified emergency response personnel, our personnel also offer additional value added services.
FSA has the vision of being Australia’s largest and most professional provider of emergency response services within Australasia. To achieve this, we must recruit, select, retain and up-skill the right team members
FSA’s current and previous Oil & Gas and Mining emergency services sub-contract experience includes:
FSA has current and previous experience in mobilising significant numbers of Emergency Response personnel to large scale Oil & Gas and Mining projects throughout Australasia. We use a systematic approach that covers all areas of contract risk.

Successful contract execution – Emergency Planning, Preparedness, Response & Recovery
FSA has experience in utilising our structured approach to contract mobilisation and contract execution. Our industry case studies show examples of where we have utilised this exact model of service delivery to the satisfaction of our customers.
The current involvement of FSA’s key management team in managing emergency response sub-contracts for JKC Australia LNG & Bechtel Australia LNG gives FSA real and current experience in emergency response mobilisation and contract management for emergency response services in the Oil and Gas industries across Australia.
FSA senior management personnel have vast experience in writing and implementing emergency response services Procedures/ Manuals/ Documentation to support our emergency services personnel
FSA has an Emergency Response Operations manual that specifies the roles and responsibilities for our Fire & Rescue Staff whilst performing emergency response work at a client’s workplace. An emergency response Manual for a sub-contracted emergency response service should include:
The ESO role can potentially be hazardous to our personnel as personnel may be working in a potentially dangerous environment in order to protect life, property and the environment.
To ensure that FSA protects our ESO Staff we have written and enforced safety procedures that cover:
During each shift where operational conditions allow;, Fire & Rescue Staff should spend at least one hour training for emergency prevention activities and at least 1 hour on emergency preparation activities.
FSA has been an RTO for almost 6 years. Our core business is the provision of emergency response and safety training. We have a national network of training personnel whom work under our strict RTO governance, procedures and standards. Our core business is the provision of emergency response and safety training.
In October 2014 we underwent a 5 yearly audit and were recently granted a 5 year extension to our RTO status with our RTO certification extended until December 2019 which demonstrates our strict adherence to the ASQA standards and RTO registration.
FSA has over 60 units of competency and over 5 qualifications that we can deliver for the contractor during this project. In up-skilling and developing your on-site ERT we can provide them with a full Cert III Mines Rescue and/or Cert III Public Safety training program.
In 2014 we trained over 36,000 personnel compared to training 30,000 personnel during 2013. We have an RTO/Compliance Manager on our team and tried and tested compliance systems in place and have had such for over 7 ½ years of being an RTO or partnering with an RTO. We do not sub-contract our RTO accreditation so therefore there is NIL risk for our emergency services clients as emergency response and safety training is core business to FSA.
An engagement of FSA’s ESO’s may include responsibility on-site at an Oil & Gas or Mining location for FSA to assume accountability and responsibility for:
FSA currently has a fulltime ESO/Trainer capacity of approximately 90 permanent and casual personnel across Australia, with a people pipeline of a further 290 personnel who are within FSA’s central database. This puts FSA at the advantage of having a strong surge capacity if our clients require additional resources to be deployed at short notice.
If FSA were to lose personnel on-site through resignation or termination, this gives FSA a generous back-up capacity to ensure that we meet our contractual requirements. FSA therefore will have the 6 additional personnel will be ready to mobilise (and will have completed training) within 90 days of mobilisation. These personnel are all currently working with FSA as ESO’s or Senior Trainers and they all have completed our induction, OH&S and ESO operational requirements.
FSA also has the following vehicles and equipment that can be on-site if required by the contractor to replace unserviceable or damaged vehicles, or if project works require additional vehicles. These can be mobilised to site within 48 hours of a request as a contingency plan for the contract:
We are a very versatile provider of Emergency Services Officers due to our strong national experience in working with some of Australia’s largest Oil & Gas construction projects and mine sites in remote locations.
