Fire Training

Fire Marshall Training, Fire Awareness Training and Evacuation Training are a part of your responsibilities under the standards and RR(FS)O.

General fire awareness

An awareness of how to correctly handle a fire extinguisher can be a matter of life or death.    Nearly 75% of small fires in the workplace are tackled every year using portable extinguishers.

Our practical general fire awareness course explains and demonstrates the best practice of fire extinguishers, practical uses, understanding different types and when and the best procedures in the event of a fire. This course can be offered at your premises, in a hired venue or we can now offer the course virtually. Please note the virtual version of the course does not include the ability for participants to practice with fire extinguishers.

Fire warden

Fire warden training can take place at your premises, a hired venue or again virtually.

Every business needs nominated fire wardens in order to be fire safety compliant under the RR(FS)O. Our course can be undertaken in just four hours and allows the participants to be competent in the following:

  • Premises Risk assessments - what to look for/consider

  • Emergency evacuations

  • Training colleagues in fire safety training

  • Assembly point training

 

Once trained, your fire marshals will be able to conduct all future premises risk assessments, speed up emergency evacuations and provide other employees with fire safety training.

Evacuation and escape route training

The evacuation and escape route training teaches the nominated person how to implement the fire action plan and gives them adequate training in fire-fighting and evacuation procedures. On completion of this course they will be confident on their actions in:

Fire evacuation strategy, Action on discovering a fire, Identification of key escape routes, Action on hearing the fire alarm, Calling the fire brigade, Power isolation, Fire wardens/marshals, Places of assembly, Maintaining a register, Training required, Personal Evacuation Plans and Liaising with emergency services
