Fire Safety Training Course

The Fire Safety Training Course is a fire safety awareness course for all staff that will raise awareness of fire safety hazards and outlining the steps to be followed in prevention and reaction should a fire arise. Since the changes to the Fire Services Act 1981 in 2003, the Fire Service is no longer obliged to provide a “complete evacuation service” for premises, thus placing the onus upon the business.

Our Fire Safety Training Course will provide learners with the knowledge and skill to prevent fires by becoming aware of fire hazards within the workplace. It emphasises the danger of fire, the importance of prevention and the necessity of urgent action when a fire breaks out.

How to Prevent Fire Hazards in the Workplace

  • Keep your buildings clean & tidy – both public areas and behind the scene
  • Dispose of all waste correctly and regularly
  • Manage flammable materials
  • Store chemicals safely and clean up spillages straight away
  • Keep fire doors closed and ensure all fire exits are clear

You must have a fire escape plan in place so that everyone in your workplace knows what to do in the event of a fire. As the best course of action will change according to your location, the type of building and the extent and whereabouts of the fire, everyone must know what to do in different situations. Therefore, it is recommended to plan and practise multiple escape routes and follow a defined course of action should you find a fire in your workplace or home.
