Staff Fire Safety Awareness Training
About the Course
The Fire Safety Awareness training course is primarily for staff in non-managerial roles - those with less responsibility than the appointed Fire Wardens (or Marshals).
The purpose of this course is to provide staff awareness of fire safety procedures and how to reduce fire risks. By doing so, employers fulfil their obligations as the responsible person under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to provide employees with a knowledge of basic fire safety.
What You'll Learn
Our comprehensive Fire Safety Awareness course covers the following topics:
- Who is responsible for Fire Safety?
- An overview of current legislation
- Principles of combustion and flame spread
- Correct indentification and selection of extinguishers
- Identifying fire hazards
- Types and meanings of fire safety signs
- Action in the event of fire and evacuation procedures
- Raising and responding to the Fire Alarm
- Choosing and using firefighting equipment
- Practical fire extinguisher use (where appropriate)
Our aim is to ensure that your staff are educated and leave the course with knowledge and confidence that will prove effective in the case of an emergency. Our classroom style sessions include PowerPoint and video presentations for visual aids and short written tests are provided where appropriate.
A group certificate will be issued free of charge listing the names of attendees. Alternatively individual certificates may be provided at an additional cost
