A new condition has been imposed by SLED on all Master licensees to ensure that all Class 1 security operatives (except Class 1E -Monitoring Centre Operators) have current first aid training while performing security duties.
Master licence holders will be responsible for ensuring that every Class 1 licensee they provide has a current First Aid certificate, and that they continue to keep this training current during their term of employment.
Due to the Greater Sydney lockdown. The implementation date for the new Master licence condition requiring them to ensure all Class 1 security operatives they provide (except 1E Monitoring Centre Operators), hold current first aid training has been extended.
The condition, which was set to be effective from 1 September 2021, has been moved to 1 December 2021.
It is important that Class 1 security operatives keep their First Aid training up to date to make sure they have the necessary skills to respond appropriately in emergency situations.
Master licence holders will need to record the details of each Class 1 licensee’s First Aid certificate and keep a copy of the certificate on file so it can be produced as required.
Note: This condition does not apply to Master licensees who only provide Class 2 licensees or Class 1E Monitoring Centre Operators.
