All practical steps
Do your staff come into contact during the course of their duties?
What training have they had to ensure they understand the requirements for safe firearms handling?
For luggage handlers, couriers, ferry operators, warehouse staff and many other service areas, while your staff may not be directly operating firearms, they still need to be able to demonstrate how to handle firearms safely, and, if required, take remedial actions to keep them safe.
Safe Firearms Handling Course
The safe firearms handling course has been developed to provide all staff who may come into contact with firearms an understanding of firearms, best handling practice and specific methods for making firearms safe.
While you may not intend your staff to be handling firearms, many may be placed into a position where they need to. Prior training provides them with confidence and competence in doing so. All practicable steps.
By having your staff attend the half-day course – you will ensure your staff:
- Are familiar with relevant seven rules of firearms safety
- Have a practical understanding of firearms and their handling
- Have the ability to confirm if a firearm is loaded
- Develop the confidence to handle and make firearms safe
While the operation and clearing drills are best practised and demonstrated with real firearms, we also understand some workplaces may not wish to have live firearms present.
No live ammunition is ever brought to training sessions – dummy rounds, clearly identifiable as such are used instead.
We also have a range of training firearms available that are clearly distinguishable from actual firearms.
- An introduction to the seven rules of firearms safety – in particular:
- An introduction to firearm types, their parts and how they work
- Bolt Actions
- Lever Actions
- Pump Actions
- Semi Automatics
- A demonstration of how to make most common styles of firearms safe – inspecting for their state (i.e. is it loaded), as well as appropriate remedial action, should it need to be taken.
- A discussion of company policy (yours) in regards to firearms handling and transportation.
Per Person, minimum of 10 attendees.
If you have less than 10 people – we may be able to combine a course with another company.
Get in touch to discuss.
On successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate of competence and the confidence of addressing situations that might arise.
What IS your firearms handling policy?
While many companies have a general statement in their Health & Safety / Risk Management plan, it’s often no enough to clearly explain the expectations and requirements when it comes to firearms handling.
If you need assistance in developing a more comprehensive storage and handling policy, just let us know. We can help.
We can incorporate this into the course itself, utilising the opportunity to practically train, as well as an update on policy expectations and requirements.
