Last week, CFA and WorkSafe met as part of the ongoing work at Fiskville and to look at efforts made since environmental engineering firm Cardno Lane Piper was engaged to deliver improvements at the training ground.
WorkSafe issued an Improvement Notice (IN) and advised that signs and a perimeter fence should be installed around dams at the site to ensure no access by unauthorised people. Installation of the signs will occur in the very near future once the new signs arrive at the site. CFA is committed to ensuring the safety of staff and volunteers at Fiskville and it remains a priority for CFA now and into the future – training will continue at the site and it is safe for all staff, trainees, volunteers and visitors.
CFA will continue to work with WorkSafe to ensure Fiskville remains the organisation’s primary training facility that will serve CFA and other agencies for decades to come.
