Staff Fire Safety Awareness Training
Who the training course is for
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 objective of the course
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 under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.

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
- Raising and responding to the Fire Alarm
- Choosing and using firefighting equipment
- Practical fire extinguisher use where appropriate
