This course is aimed at everyone within the workplace. Fire prevention is everyone’s responsibility, this course provides a knowledge and understanding of fire safety issues helping to develop a culture of fire prevention and protection.
Staff and visitor safety are paramount in any workplace, so it is vital that all staff are aware of what they can do to prevent a fire from occurring and what steps they need to take in the event of a fire breaking out in the workplace.
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 requires all employers to carry out fire risk assessments and have adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are in place to minimise the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.
This course covers the steps of a fire risk assessment, good practices to follow to prevent fires from starting, what causes a fire and the processes to follow in the event of an emergency or evacuation.
